The whole "Macs are immune" thing is so much BS. Yes I understand that The OS has a better security system. Awesome. But not only can good security not stop idiots from downloading and installing viruses, the only real reason that Macs have stayed remotely safe is the lower user base. If Mac and Windows switched places, this argument would be going the other way. If you are going to write a malicious program, you are going to do in a manner that hits the most amount of people, and that means Windows. Take the Iphone for example. Thats an apple product, running a version of their "secure" OS, yet as soon as it came out, people we making viruses for it, because they knew everyone would get one.All it takes is a large user base and you are in trouble.
