Apple No Longer Claims Immunity

Apple finally admits that OS X is not immune from viruses and malware, just as security experts (and also yours truly) have been saying.

While the Mac OS X’s Unix (BSD) underpinnings make it safer than Windows, Windows has come a long way with its security and the Mac has come a long way in terms of market penetration.  More OS X installations mean a more tempting target for “black hat” hackers.

It is incumbent on all computer users to be responsible for their computer and network security.
