david_maynor.gif David Maynor, the hacker who unveiled a security hole in the Mac OS X 10.4.6 operating system last summer apologized for not disclosing the vulnerabilities to Apple before his public demonstration at the Black Hat conference.

“I made mistakes, I screwed up. I probably shouldn’t have done that demo. I probably shouldn’t have talked to a reporter about it before the information was made available. There are a lot of things you can blame me for. I was wrong. At the same time, I also didn’t try to assassinate Apple.”
