    i wouldn't worry too much (unless you're running windows on it also)

    btw, did it say anything about Leopard?

    I'd say what MacWorld is "onto" can be summed up as follows:

    "And now, a word from our sponsors."

    Unfortunately these types of magazines flourish on ads. It's also the reason why many people don't read the same photography magazines they used to read. It's ad to article ratio seems to be 10:1.

    I wouldn't worry but also don't go through life with a lackadaisical attitude that nothing will ever happen. Be safe but know that you don't need 5 applications to boot with your Mac in order to just make sure it's free of rubbish like you would Windows.

    When I first started reading Macworld around 2001, they had the same type articles back then about security. I didn't worry about it then and I won't worry about it now. That is, until there is actually something to worry about and believe me, the world will know when Mac users have to worry... some people can't wait for it to happen :mad:
