Apple’s ‘Targeted’ Gatekeeper Bypass Patch Leaves OS X Users Exposed

This article explains a continuing problem with OS X Gatekeeper, a feature in Apple’s OS designed to protect against the loading of malicious and unsigned application code.  Apple is claiming that patches to this point have been “targeted” and that a more comprehensive patch is coming, but I interpret that as “we haven’t figured out how to solve the problem, so we are going to dabble around the edges until a real solution is available.”
