And the spotlight paragraph references Mozilla browsers? Kinda reaching there if you ask me.
I agree with sonjay... I've been a Mac man for years, and like many, I attribute the lack of viruses and security issues to 2 things:
1. Nobody has Macs (still!). If I were a hacker, I wouldn't want to put hours of effort into something that would only affect 17 people.
2. When one company (a good company) builds all the components of a system, you can't help but have less holes in that system than one that brings in third parties for everything.
But I sure as hell don't think Macs are impervious to hackers... plenty of Mac-ers may think that, but those people are the bizarro-world equivalent to the Dell-owning soccer moms who think the latest AOL Security Download will protect them from issues.
The biggest conduit for hackers isn't Windows, Mozilla browsers, etc... it's human ignorance, and no "patch" is going to fix that. I've had a PC at work for 3 years, and never had a single virus or even pop-up. My coworker got a new PC a month ago and already has it loaded up with spyware and pop-ups. As long as the bulk of the computer-purchasing population is that ignorant, hackers will focus on the easy prey.
Long story short: wise Mac-users are safe; ignorant Mac users are not safe- on their Macs, on a Dell, on an adding machine...
