    Question no antvirus
    i was wondering what it is about macs that make them not need any antivirus software? i read in my local newspaper about that conficker worm, and they said that it didnt affect macs, only pcs. i dont understand why that is?

    i know. kind of a noob question...

    conficker exploited a Server Service on the windows platform.

    Microsoft has the market by a large margin, people just dont screw with OSX much because its not nearly as used.
