No one says they *can't* exist, it's just that they *don't* exist. Simply put, there is no malware on OS X. No keyloggers, no viruses, no worms, no trojans.Even if such a program was written, the user would have to allow it to run, give it their password, wonder why whatever it is *needs* their password, etc. It would be a whole hell of a lot of social engineering to do it, and thus far, no one has done it. Plain and simple. Let me reiterate - NONE.The permissions system on OS X is also much more secure by design and default than XP, and much better implemented than Vista. It's nearly impossible to use Vista with UAC and WoW, especially if you want to use add-ons. Nevermind the constant and numbing "this program wants to do this, click proceed" (yeah, yeah, click, click, whatever).Find me a *single* story of a WoW account getting hacked on a Mac where the person did not give out their credentials. Good luck with that.
