I can't answer any questions about Mac...this is a PC forum and I'm not a user who has each type of computer
FWIW: I do know that new Macs now feel it necessary to have AV protection of a sort, I forget what it's called (in their newer systems).http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sou...mp;oq=&aqi=
Based on what I see...there goes another myth
Quote from the Apple website:
"Is a Mac safe from PC viruses?
Yes, a Mac is 100 percent safe from viruses designed to attack PCs. And although no computer connected to the Internet is completely immune to all viruses and spyware, the Mac is built on a solid UNIX foundation and designed with security in mind. The Mac web browser, Safari, alerts you whenever youíre downloading an application ó even if itís disguised as a picture or movie file. And Apple continually makes free security updates available for Mac owners. You can even have them download automatically."
Sounds like doubletalk to me.
PC users don't get infected because they don't know or protection is not available...they get infected because they don't care to do the little that is required to erect proper defenses.
I don't think all the AV manufacturers have developed products for Macs...just as window dressing
But I really am not in a position to assert one way or the other.
Actually...since Macs can now run Windows...this isn't a PC forum, my error
