    Haha. Wrong my friend. In the early stages of Apple's lifespan. They did say, Macs have no virus. Virus being the general virus, that affects most windows computers.


    I did not rule out that there are no viruses for Macs. There are. But they aren't that good and don't cause major damage at all.

    Prevention is always better than cure. Apple believes in that. Be safe and not sorry.

Nothing is impenetrable.

    Hackers have all the time on their hands. Keep hitting the same spot continuously and even a 1 inch steel door will have a hole in it. It's just how fast you can breach the system. Time and speed is a major factor for hackers and virus creators.

    The more damage you can do withing a shorter period of time, would result to your host not being able to repair itself fast enough to prevent another attack.


    You might not be even surprised that viruses were initially created by hackers working for some organizations. Those organization which may be producing anti-virus software today. It's a huge business.

    I can't agree with you. Hacker don't target mass population, but love to try out challenging task.
    If it is years ago, saying MAC has no virus, I could agree with you. But not now anymore, just google and you will find more answer what happening to MAC.

    Till now, they are still strong in the market, but some cheeky fella(quite many I would say nowadays) went and install windows on MAC. =.=

    Well. If you understand a hackers mindset, you would agree with me. Haha. Challenges aside. A hacker usually has psychological problems in him/her.


    You can install Windows on a Mac, but it's not going to affect the Mac OS when you are using it alone. And it would be stupid to install Windows on Mac.

    That's a norm fact. What worries is that the discovery of worm/virus in OSX has proven the fact that it is not invulnerable than it used to be in the past.

    And also, there will always be programmers out there trying to prove things wrong, remember this well. And there are different types of hackers in general.

    There are viruses that were initially programs written for trial and eventually went beyond control due to some flawed logic or algorithm. Those hackers are there to test the vulnerability of the system/program. Its very normal of 'em, especially when the organizations want to get rid of possible loopholes.

    Yupp. Well, i believe in this. For every problem, there will be a solution. Just that how long it takes and will you be able to take the effect of the solution. The solution may not come easy.

    No, they don't really have psychological problem, just outdo their hacking programming level. Do know banker do have their own hacker to hack into their own banking system, of course, that is a policy for them when they implement/enhance a system.

    What I am pointing out is people just couldn't get used with MAC. Especially girls, love mac of the design but don't know how to use it. Thus, install windows

    No young one, only if they could make the same claim now, be prepared to be slammed with nasty remarks.

    Some owners of Mac computers have held the belief that Mac OS X is incapable of harboring computer viruses, but Leap-A will leave them shellshocked.
    Nice comment on "Virus-That-Doesn't-Cause-Major-Damage".

    Perhaps we should leave the damage aside and think as a Mac user, what will it be when the OSX is infected with virus? I doubt Apple has an answer for that other than pointing you to various anti-virus companies for solutions which might not even exist in the first place.

    And I would confidently say that none of Mac users will live with those kind of nonsense virus even though they could be less harmful than the ones on PC.

    Actually. I stepped out already. Haha. I don't care. Just use the computer. It does your stuff well. Good. I prefer to keep hard copy for personal items. I still prefer a mac.
