Apple and Open Source Response

Another area that Apple is excellent at is responding to security threats. Apple often issues security updates soon after a vulnerability is detected. Because Mac OS X is based largely on open source technology, the open source community often helps to identify and, in some cases, respond to security threats. This results in a product that is more scrutinized for issues (security-related and otherwise) and in faster response times to known issues.
