Also Safari, Twitter, Calendar, iBooks, FaceTime, Keynote and Software Update.
FORTUNE -- Ashkan Soltani, an independent computer security expert best known for analyzing Edward Snowden's NSA leaks for the Washington Post, has published a list of applications running Mac OS X 10.9 that he says are vulnerable to the same security hole Apple (AAPL) patched in its mobile operating system on Friday.
They include apps used by millions of Mac users every day: Mail, Safari and Calendar.
The bug, a single wayward "goto fail" command in Apple's SecureTansport protocol, is a newer problem for the Mac than for the iPhone. It's been lurking in the shadows of iOS since September 2012. According to ImperialViolet's Adam Langley, who isolated the bug on Saturday, it showed up in the Mac with the release of OS X Mavericks three months ago.
"We are aware of this issue," an Apple spokeswoman told Fortune, "and already have a software fix that will be released very soon."
Meanwhile, some experts were surprised that Apple would reveal the existence of the problem in iOS while OS X was still open to attack.
"Come the hell on, Apple," wrote Kristin Paget, a self-identified "princess hacker" who left Apple last month to shore up security at Tesla Motors (TSLA). "You just dropped an ugly 0day on us and then went home for the weekend – goto fail indeed." [0day = zero-day computer attack].
Paget is famous both for a 2010 stunt in which she intercepted AT&T (T) phone calls at a hacker conference using a fake cell tower built with $1,500 worth of spare parts, and for changing her name (and sexual self-identfication) in 2011 from Chris to Kristin. As it happens, she joined Apple in Sept. 2012, when the bug appeared in iOS 6.0, and left in January 2014, a few weeks before it was patched.
Apple has plenty to celebrate. I guess.
FORTUNE -- The video is lovely. And the elaborate timeline on Apple's home page that introduces the cast, profiles the Macs, and expands on the video's themes is clearly a labor of love.
So is it churlish to suggest that some people at Apple (AAPL) might have too much time on their hands? Or that those resources might be better deployed fixing iCloud, solving the iPhoto MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 24, 2014 6:03 PM ET
The analysts' estimates range from 3.8 million to 5.2 million. Average: 4.6 million.
FORTUNE -- It was once Apple's (AAPL) No. 1 source of revenue, but today, 30 years after its launch, the Mac is now almost an afterthought -- No. 3 in terms of revenue, behind the iPhone and iPad and ahead (for now) of iTunes.
The Mac did manage to generated $21.5 billion in fiscal 2013 -- roughly one eighth MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 23, 2014 8:21 PM ET
U.S. sales of Apple's Mac grew 28.5% last quarter, says Gartner. IDC says they fell 5.7%.
FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) was the PC maker that zigged when the market zagged, according to a Gartner report on 2013 sales issued Thursday. [IDC begs to differ. See below.]
Overall, the news was grim. The industry as a whole suffered its seventh consecutive quarter of declining shipments -- down 6.9% for the quarter and 10% for MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 9, 2014 9:21 PM ET
In 30 quarters, its market share grew 150% and its profit share 270%. Has that run ended?
FORTUNE -- Needham's Charlie Wolf has been following Apple (AAPL) long enough to still care what's happening to the Mac,* and on Tuesday he took a crack at explaining why the company's most venerable product line (it turns 30 in January) seems to have, as he puts it, "fallen back to earth."

Windows guru Adrian Kingsley-Hughes has all but abandoned the Microsoft ecosystem.
FORTUNE -- "After more than two decades of being a dedicated Windows power user, and having invested tens of thousands of hours into mastering the platform, and run versions spanning from 3.0 to 8.1, I've now all but given up on Windows."
Those are words Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, a Microsoft (MSFT) Windows and Visual Basic guru with several how-to books and countless MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 13, 2013 11:35 AM ET
The analysts' estimates range from 3.6 million to 5 million. Average: 4.26 million.
FORTUNE -- Apple's (AAPL) Mac sales haven't been hurt as much as Windows PC's have by the rise of tablets and smartphones. But Mac shipments peaked in late 2011, and the best Apple can probably hope for now is that they hold up better than everybody else's.

Both Gartner and IDC show summer Mac sales down as tablets replace PCs in schools.
FORTUNE -- An Apple (AAPL) summer tradition -- strong back-to-school sales of the Mac -- finally got broken by the same disruption that has been draining growth out of the entire PC industry: The booming tablet market that Apple created when it launched the iPad in 2010.
Gartner and IDC released their third quarter PC shipment reports MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 10, 2013 7:33 AM ET

FORTUNE -- There were several surprises in Katy Huberty's summary Friday of a survey of 530 Morgan Stanley summer analysts and associates in North America (NA), Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
First, who knew that Morgan Stanley hired so many summer interns?
And who knew that they were so devoted to Apple's (AAPL) products?
Huberty doesn't make a MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 23, 2013 6:22 AM ET
In the context of the industry's longest slowdown, the numbers could have been worse.
FORTUNE -- According to Gartner, worldwide PC shipments fell 10.9% last quarter, the industry's fifth consecutive quarter of decline. According to IDC, shipments are down 11.4% year over year, capping the industry's longest slowdown ever.
The main thing that's hurting PC sales, both research firms agree, is that customers who used to buy PCs are buying tablet computers instead.
