Kasperskky lab expert discovered that a new version of a backdoor trojan for Apple's OS X operating system takes advantage of an exploit in Microsoft Word to spread.
The new Mac-specific trojan, named "Backdoor.OSX.SabPub.a," uses a Java exploit to infect targeted machine. It spreads through Microsoft Word documents that exploit a vulnerability known as "CVE-2009-0563." There are currently at least two variants of the "SabPub" trojan, which remains classified as an "active attack." It is expected that new variants of the bot will be released in the coming weeks, as the latest was created in March.
Ars Technica reports that Apple has began asking users of iOS devices to select and answer some question related to their Apple IDs. Such measures were reportedly taken by the company to improve security of iTunes accounts.
After being shown the message, users are asked to select from a number of security questions and provide personal answers. Users are also prompted to provide a backup e-mail address in case the primary address associated with their Apple ID is compromised.

Apple is reportedly testing a prototype of next-generation iPhone hidden under the iPhone 4 casing. The next iPhone is said to not include the iPhone 4/4s form factor, and Apple is testing the prototype in older casing in order to throw off leaks. The prototype iPhone is used to test a variation of A5X processor in an iPhone. The A5X system-on-a-chip in the iPad 3 was specifically designed to run the new Retina Display, so that adding this chip in the next iPhone wouldn’t make much sense.
South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper reports that the head of human resources at one Foxconn factory gave the info claiming that Apple has recently placed an order for its sixth-generation iPhone that is on schedule to launch in October of 2012.
"We just got the order," the Foxconn human resources head reportedly told the newspaper. "[The release] will be around October."
Focxonn has posted many hiring notices recently. Such fact suggests that Focxonn enlarges its staff preparing for mass production of Apple’s new devices, presumably, the sixth-generation iPhone.
The Apple Gazette has compiled a nice photo gallery that offers a look inside Apple Headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop. Take a look:
When you first walk inside Apple HQ, you’re greeted by the welcome/reception desk, which is situated inside the massive atrium with its bright natural light and suspended walkways.

John Gruber of Daring Fireball claims he knows that Apple has a test 7.85-inch iPad with a resolution of 1,024 by 768 in its lab. Though it's not clear if the device will ever see the light of day.
"I've heard from numerous people that that's one of the ideas that they're noodling with," he said.
The height of such a device would be the same as the width of the current iPad. After testing the approximate size using a screenshot rotated into landscape mode, Gruber believes it would be "usable."
Brett Terpstra posted an in depth comparison of all the text editor applications available for iPhone and iPad.
This is a feature comparison of text editors on iOS. The information was compiled by the web community on an open Google spreadsheet. I cannot vouch for its current accuracy, but will be verifying everything as I'm able. It's meant to help you find the most useful way to write, code or take notes for your personal needs. Every editor is geared toward a slightly different purpose, with their own strengths and focus.

iClarified performed several boot time tests for iPad 1, iPad 2 and iPad 3 on the latest iOS 5.1.
The video is synced on the down click of the power button. Take a look at the results:
Surprisingly, the boot time has got slightly slower over each generation. Not a big deal though, since users don't reboot iPad that much anyway.
TechCrunch on Saturday reported that Apple has reportedly started rejecting apps which access UDIDs (A unique device identifier, is basically a serial number that a mobile network uses to identify mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad.)
In August 2011, Apple warned software makers that the company would be killing off UDID access with iOS 5, suggesting that developers begin work on app-specific tracking mechanisms. Removing the feature effectively ends OS-wide user tracking and forces developers to create their own proprietary opt-in identification systems.
Since the release of iPad 3, President of DisplayMate Raymond Soneira has been testing all aspects of its Retina display. He
ADR Studios has published concept photos of the 'new iPhone' featuring three Retina Displays, an LED powered edge, and 4G LTE.
First of all it's sim-less: it doesn't use a simcard by our phone mobile operator. It can grab your data directly by the mobile network, also in 4G LTE. It uses a new audio section, with two panel speakers, on the rear of it aluminum forged unibody. All the controls are now on the top and the edge is so thin!
The great news is the new iPhone haven't just one retina display. It has three ones! One strip screen is on the top, to show you all the network infos, clocks, notifications and so on. The bottom one is for App dock, multitasking panel and so on. The central one is only for the desktop: more space, more freedom.
The home button is integrated into bottom strip display and it can be activate thanks to the closer motion sensor. In addition you've a "led powered edge". You can use it to show the strength of battery life or to show you a preferred caller: you can choose the color thanks to the led edge dedicated app.
Here are some beautiful photos. Take a look:
On Tuesday Apple officially commented claims that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor.
"The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller said in a statement to The Loop. "If customers have any concerns, they should contact AppleCare."
Apple’s response came only couple hours after the publication of an infrared test that revealed the new iPad runs 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than the previous-generation iPad 2. The temperatures of the new iPad, however, remain well within Apple's specified operating temperature of 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 to 35 degrees Celsius.
Yesterday we reported that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor. Repair Labs has conducted their own analysis and found that the A5X chip in the new device runs as much as 16 degrees Fahrenheit (about 9.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than the A5 chip in the iPad 2.
According to a series of tests conducted by Repair Labs, the A5X chip registered temperatures up to 36 degrees celsius (96.8 degrees Fahrenheit), compared to A5 readings of 27 degrees C (80.6 degrees F). The experiment involved opening up the tablets in order to directly measure the temperatures of the chips.
When the original iPad was released, there weren’t many apps available for the device. So Apple allowed apps developed for the iPhone’s smaller display to run on the iPad by using emulation. The apps could use only a fraction of the iPad’s display. Alternatively, iPhone-specific apps could be run in a 2x mode, utilizing pixel doubling technique to fill the iPad’s display. However, in 2x mode text and artwork look pixilated and blocky.
