Geez, is it already that time again where we have to sit down and talk about security.
It's bad enough that your faithful Mac Inspector has been running his tail off to cover the RSA Conference, but now I check out our site and see that Iain Thomson's recent article on Mac security has been peppered with responses from angry Mac users who continue to swear up and down that things are just fine and dandy.
People, there is a threat. There are Mac vulnerabilities, there are Mac updates, there is a Mac botnet. To claim that Macs are in no danger for malware infection at this point is pretty much just sticking one's head in the sand.
Are they major outbreaks? No. Are they as numerous as PC threats? No. But does any of that really matter at the end of the day? The threat is there. Wake up and accept that Mac users now have to protect themselves. It's not hard. Make sure everything is patched, don't open unknown or suspicious files. If you really want, you can download an anti-virus package as well (ClamX AV is free and is used by Apple for OS X server.)
This is just getting silly. It's time Mac users all grew up a bit, accepted the emerging dangers and quit throwing a fit whenever someone uses the words 'Mac' and 'malware' in the same sentence.
