>From the keychain exploit article:

"MacOS is designed to be secure by default, and Gatekeeper warns users against installing unsigned apps, like the one shown in this proof of concept, and prevents them from launching the app without explicit approval. We encourage users to download software only from trusted sources like the Mac App Store, and to pay careful attention to security dialogs that macOS presents."

I think that saying this makes the mac inherently insecure is like clicking the link in the email and then complaining that Windows allowed your computer to be hacked.
