I just received in the mail the September issue of Consumer Reports. Their cover story is "Stay Safe Online," a compendium of tips, products, and reviews designed to assist readers in avoiding virii, adware, and spyware. Immediately curious to see what they said about Macs, I found a paragraph in their "Net Threat Rising: Crime abounds but you can fight back" article that talks of the Macs' susceptibility to malware versus PCs susceptibility. Quoting: "Macs are safer than Windows PC for some online hazards. Only 20 percent of Mac owners suveyed reported detecting a virus in the past two years, compared with 66 percent of Windows PC owners. Just 8 percent of Mac users reported a spyware infection in the last six months vs. 54 percent of Windows PC users." 20% and 8%?!?!? Exactly who are they surveying? Am I to believe that one in five mac owners have been infected with a virus and one in eight have been infected with spyware? Everything I've heard, read, and experienced tells me these figures are insanely, obnoxiously, high.
