    A curious falsehood has surrounded Mac computers over the last decade, as they have resurged onto the market. People believe that Macs are immune to the malware, viruses, and worms that have wrought havoc on PCs.

    you know what, you are the only person who spotted this. apart from being speechless with the the shocking editorial content in that article and some idiot posting pictures of a condom going into a net port there is absolutely nothing in that article that is even remotely correct. The mac has had trojans for years. (or OSX/Unix as the case should be).

    I will certainly not let DH news become the inquirer2 with Nick Farrell style rants and links to anything with "apple" in it, just to get conversation (loosest term of the word I might add).

    Closed.
