Worthless consideration of security, Mac vs. Windows, from Scamtypes:
The truth of the matter is that Windows machines do indeed face the majority of security issues. They have done so for quite some time and probably will do for a few more years to come. Mac users, however, should perhaps try feel some affinity for their Windows brethren as things are beginning to change. The Apple Mac is not totally immune to viruses, spyware or hacking attempts.
The real scam appears to be broad stroke articles online which hype the continuing saga of potential for disaster for Mac users.
The time is coming when the Macintosh will become a genuine target for a whole host of security issues.
Does anyone ever ask the obvious? Why are there so few (count them on one hand) malware attacks on the Mac? It is not security by obscurity. The Mac is a difficult target. Windows is not.
