Interesting article:

http://www.infoworld.com/article/08/07/14/29FE-mac-security_1.html

Quick list:

"Security flaw No. 1: Update management
Security flaw No. 2: Serious third-party security flaws are slow to be fixed
Security flaw No. 3: Everybody's an administrator (or not)
Security flaw No. 4: Naïve use of Back to My Mac
Security flaw No. 5: Complacency over malware
Security flaw No. 6: Apple's security is half-baked"

The guy seems kind of like a Windows fanboi. Some of the points are interesting like how there is no un-patching a system AKA package management.
