Re: [newtech-1] Mac is cracked in 10 seconds

Michael, the man said "I���d say that Macs are less secure for the reasons we���ve discussed here (lack of anti-exploitation technologies) but are more safe because there simply isn���t much malware out there. For now, I���d still recommend Macs for typical users as the odds of something targeting them are so low that they might go years without seeing any malware, even though if an attacker cared to target them it would be easier for them.���

Victor just pointed out the facts and let people decide what to think about Mac but you quoted the man out of context without showing any reasonings or logics from the source.    http://www.roughl...­ 

I really wish the Mac fanboys and Apple will get wise as soon as possible and stop gloating about Mac being safer than PC.  They're just painting themselves up as targets.  I'm sure everyone here are aware that if Mac recieves one single well-planned attack, it will be a catastrophe thanks to its uniformity and limited anti-exploitation implimentations.  It's like the Red Queen theory on computers.

In a way, Victor is doing us all a favor by helping maintain the elitist point of view that Mac s0x0rz.  In the end, is the ego more important or not needing to worry about malware more important?
