    Thought you all might enjoy this, unless you have to maintain PCs, then this is a heads-up:

    Sircam and Nimda, two 6 + month old virii are still the top threats for PCs.

    Anyone remember the last time you saw a virus on a Mac? For me it's the autoexec that shows up on floppies occasionally in the lab, but I suspect it's just Virex being anal...

    Anybody have an idea how many visuses there are on OSX?
