Mac Viruses

Apple’s recent ads talk about how there are no viruses written for
Mac. That statement is not entirely true. Viruses are released for
Mac. in 2005, 143 viruses targeted Macintosh computers. Compare this
with the 150,000 written for PCs and it does not sound bad but the
statement is still incorrect. By the way, if you want to view the new

  1. It is funny how so many Apple fans will bring up the fact that Mac is free from viruses. It’s almost like a selling point for the company, the issue I have is that you just pointed out that viruses ARE written for Mac. Deceiving as always.

    • That was a fine argument until they became popular enough to be a target for attackers. Imagine a classroom where every kid is complaining that they are being picked on and someone in the back says “I’ve never been picked on”. Who do you think will be next?
