Threats to Macs

It is (wrongly) believed that machines running Mac OS X are invulnerable to infection and that their perfect operating system code protects them from intruders. Consequently, malware is finding a safe haven on machines that lack anti-virus protection. User carelessness is resulting in computers becoming unmanageable.
