    ZDNet Australia's Munir Kotadia interviewed F-Secure chief research officer Mikko Hypponen before his keynote address, essentially getting a sneak peek of what he would cover in his presentation.

    "It's not just that Apple have had a bad year, it's that Apple OS X people have had a bad year. The iOS people have had a great year; in fact, they've had a great five years," he said.

    "In June, iPhone is going to be five years old. One of the most visible gadgets in the world — zero malware, not a single virus/trojan/backdoor that would run on a non-modified, non-jailbroken iPhone, which is a great accomplishment.

    "It's been long overdue to see problems like these in OS X, because it really wasn't as secure as everybody thought it was."
