I know I shouldn't rise to it
Much as I hate these Mac Vs Windows debate, I loved Mr or Mrs Mac-Lover's arguments...
You couldn't possibly think that it's because Mac's make up something like < 3% of the home market that people just leave it alone? Ten's of thousands of viruses/exploits for Windows - more than likely, that's what Mitchell and Webb would have you believe, but I doubt they're still unpatched. And yes, Apple patch flaws as well but unlike Windows, there isn't many people looking for the flaws before they can be patched to exploit them.
The fact that you still feel the need to use virus scanners/malware detecters smacks to me that your confidence can't be that high.
I shouldn't rise to it, I know I shouldn't, but it's been a long day. In my mind it's horses for courses. I don't spend my life telling people to use Windows and from what I remember of the article, all it says is (to paraphrase), "don't be so cocky, it can still happen to Macs". Here's hoping it remains a minority OS so the users don't find the harsh reality of being a target of virus writers - if this exploit was Windows I can fairly guarantee it wouldn't have been demonstrated in a competition, it would have just been released to the wild.
Anonymous like Mac-Lover. And also for fear of flames.
