A bit more about malware on Mac Products:
By the way, many hear Macs have no better security than Windows PCs. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is NOT simply “Security by Obscurity” (10% of laptop Market). Mac security problems (viri etc.) reported have been related to old pre-OSX O/S, Officeand other M$ products run on Macs, pfishing attacks etc. Macs don’t recognize .exe files,and most importantly default privlidges do not allow any “foreign” software to be installed.MacOSX informs you of any attempt to install “foreign” software, and if you insist on installing it, it will ask for the system password. Even if you’re gullible enough to enter the system password, it again warns you that you’re about to install “foreign” softeware for which you have to acknowledge again. Even if it is installed (i.e. an .exe file), you can click on it and it will do no damage to you Mac. In addition, unlike Windows PCs out of the box all port access except 2 (ftp & ssh) are blocked which prevents hackers from exploiting backdoors. You can see plenty of testimony from Windows users who are relieved when they switch to Macs to be free of malware, except phishing attacks, of course. Now if Apple would only send me a check for writing this based on my heavy Windows, Linux and OSX systems experience.
