Macintosh computers hit with malware attack



Now affecting over 600,000 mac computers worldwide the mac malware attack called "Flashback" is one of the largest malware attacks on Macintosh yet. Mac users can protect their mac from attacks like this if they have kaspersky or another aftermarket security software. As for apple they say they are including a new security software for the next generation of Macintosh called "Gatekeeper"

  7. I use only ipad and ipod from Apple.
    About virus, even IBM had that challenge that no one can insert virus in their system, no one needs to insert virus into calculator. Mac isnt that popular compared to Microsoft, now when they are they have to handle virus problem too.
    As a microsoft fan, I am still betting on Microsoft tortoise with Hare Apple on this race of mobile/mobile app products. :)
