Many people say that Mac OSX has a backdoor in it. It probably does, why wouldn't it? It's closed source therefore it would be stupid for Apple not to put in a special access route.
The question is what implications does this have on anonymity/Tor? Let's say you're running VirtualBox with Whonix with a Mac OS X host, what's the danger in that if,
No important information is stored on the computer
The computer is only used for Tor to browse the internet and that's it
Can somebody explain what the dangers are during normal browsing (through Tor) even if a backdoor is present? Why would an open source host make Whonix and VirtualBox safer? Again, this would obviously be different if actual data is stored on the system and could therefore be looked at or stolen. However browsing is fairly amnesic. I think the problem is that I'm not understanding how a computer can be attacked during just browsing the web through Tor.
