Do Macs Need to Run Extra Antivirus Software?


It was interesting to see that the "first" of the new ads released by Apple was touting how resilient the Mac is to viruses.

That's not a bad approach to selling more Macs if you ask me. It's no secret that Windows has been ravished by malware, spyware security holes and viruses. It's a convincing argument to state that there were "114,000 known viruses for PCs" by the end of 2005 and NONE for the mac especially if you're a PC user sick of fighting what must feel like a losing battle.

Itís convincing, yes, but is it true? Apple Matters | Do Macs Need to Run Extra Antivirus Software?
