This is a much discussed topic. Get a virus scanner or not... Some points/questions: - More and more people are using macs, will it become viable for them to produce more viruses for them. Its not macs cant get viruses, its just there arn't very many. - I know people like a virus scanner to protect others. Im not in a cooperation or share files much, so i dont need one for that. - Does apples updates protect against the few mac viruses there are? - Malware, spyware, etc. To protect against that does it just require common sense ("No, i dont want to enter my credit card number!") - Is the Mac OS built so it is impossible to penetrate with a virus (not sure?). Thanks Any advice should be good.
