In an interview with Cnet, Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller talks about Apple’s
ongoing security efforts for Mac OS X. The interview follows criticism in the wake of recent issues like Apple’s
recent software update to address problems a potential vulnerability in Safari — security experts say the problem still hasn’t been completely fixed. Critics also suggest that Apple is downplaying changes in system software updates that address security concerns.
Schiller conceded that Apple could be doing a better job of talking about problems when they’re identified. “If people think we can do a better job of communicating some of this to everybody, than we will do a better job,” he said. Schiller said Apple’s efforts to date address “one part of what is a complex problem” and indicated that “fixes to the other parts” will be forthcoming.
