Re: OS vulnerabilities
It's a good point you raise about Mac vulnerabilities. Macs are certainly increasing in the enterprise, yet security products have been largely windows-centric. With attackers looking for a way in to gain access to other data on the network, a macbook without the same protection as the windows machines would be an attractive target.

Re: OS vulnerabilities
@Ryan: Plus, only in the past few years have people even started to pay much attention to Apple platform security.  For years, as Apple's market share was relatively tiny, people -- including attackers -- didn't care much.

Shellshock and Heartbleed
As they were not too long ago I know all to well the scramblings behind trying to remediate these two major vulnerabilities. They were so well publicized that non-security sides of the organization were inquiring about the patching efforts.

Re: OS vulnerabilities
Yes, I think you will start to see this as more of a commonality with the increasing Mac footprint in the market. It hasn't quite extended over to the corporate side as fast as it has from a personal perspective but regardless Mac is definitely becoming more prevalent then before. With that comes more code for the OS and more opportunities for open holes.

OS vulnerabilities
It's one thing to look at the past ten years in a single lump, but it's also worth noting that many more vulnerabilities are being found for Apple OS's than Microsoft OS's these days.
