Speedy patching?

Apple Patches Java for Mac OS X Flaw.

The Apple patch comes exactly three months after Sun Microsystems Inc.’s original warning that a vulnerability in its JRE (Java Runtime Environment) could allow an attacker to turn off Java’s security feature and execute malicious code on a compromised machine.

Thanks, Apple for the speed of that patch! Three months is simply unacceptable – up there with Microsoft’s sloth. Do I get the feeling that someone in Cupertino isn’t taking security seriously because, like all too many Mac users, they think that Mac OS X is somehow immune from security problems?
