This is not an exploit.... it's spyware. It just snoops on the user and sends the data back. I'm not saying that's a good thing, but it doesn't mean Macs are any less/more vulnerable than they used to be. You're comparing apples and oranges. The spyware requires root access and asks for the admin password. It's not like it exploits some flaw in the machine.... it exploits a flaw in the users (the one where they'll give admin access to anything that asks).
