Mac malware
Authored by: SirPavlova on Apr 19, '12 12:31:36AM

I ran Windows XP for years without antivirus, both pre- & post-SP2. My yearly paranoia scans showed no infections whatsoever. When I finally switched to a Mac, my XP system was still running as snappily as the day I installed it, unlike any system I've ever seen with antivirus rubbish all through it.

Updates, knowing the system, & not using IE. That is the whole of the Law. Nothing's going to protect you from a 0-day worm except luck.
