There would not be such a reason so much on mac for this type of software, due to the fact that OS X does not rune on a registry type system. All applications have preferences and for any of the preferences to be modified you would have to authenticate the action.

Yeah, there's pretty much no need for something that involves the word "registry" on a Mac.

hijacked on a mac

I don't understand the inner workings stuff, but all the contacts on my yahoo mail account got contacted by someone and then they got deleted. Was that a problem that was the result of malware I have on my Mac? If so, how to I get rid of it?

malware on a mac?

unless u agreed to a program to install something and entering a user password i find that unlikely. Sounds like sumone signed onto a yahoo account with a saved password and just deleted the account just to be a jerk.
