Core Tech to Apple: Mark this on your calender!

Security researchers at Core Technologies identified three critical holes in Apple's iCal application that is bundled with OSX that could allow attackers to run arbitrary code, potentially without the user's intervention. As the ethical security professionals they are, they contacted Apple about the problems. Apple sat on their hands and did nothing. Core got angry and told Apple that they were going to publish their data on May 21st whether Apple had fixed the problem or not.

Apple still has not repaired the security breaches.
