    I find this hilarious. If they try releasing security updates in a manner fast enough to combat new malware variants, they're in for a sore surprise! Most users reject updates to iTunes constantly, so I doubt they'll be installing a new system update daily.

    I'd be highly surprised if they weren't expecting this. I'm sure it will take them a week to admit it though.
