My Personal Operating System Breakdown:
Mac = Easy to use, very few virii/malware, limited hardware compatibility options
Unix = Hard to use, almost no virii/malware, better but still limited hardware compatibility options
Windows = Average use difficulty, lots of virii/malware, best hardware compatibility options
Take your pick. They all have flaws. The best OS would be
Mac style and ease of use

thats like saying Person A is allergic to water
but Person B is allergic to windex, alcohol, latex, pine sol, peanuts, and other easily avoidable substances
so since person A has less vulnerabilities, hes safer.

my apologies to the mods. i didn't mean to turn this into a mac vs. pc argument.
that being said, i do claim the throne as official rabble rouser of MMI.

A Unix or Linux OS is not unhackable, but it is a lot safer than Windows NT OS's.

I got little snitch myself. Well worth buying. Annoy at first but once you got your normal connections cleared to go then nice to have.
If you are on Comcast internet they now offer Macs Norton's Internet Security Suite for free like they do for PCs.

probably allittle of both. but the real stab here from Intego is. not only are they [in my opinion] the best protection for a Mac that you can buy. but theyll charge you a premium annual fee to continue your ability to get upgrades. [for life]. theyve really got it made. buy our premium software at a premium price and continue to have to pay fees or we'll stop giving you updates. then theyll scare the public with a WHOLE new version of spyware which will prompt more users to enter their cycle. they probably had the malicious code written for all we know. i for one am one of the suckers that bought into this. [HOWEVER] i can tell you for certain i am virus free. it'll even scan your iphone or ipod [probably iPAd as well] and actually, the only virus i have found came from the Cydia store via the security app Metasploit.killall Terminal

How would you know if you're infected?
04-16-2010, 11:27 PM #38
You buy their software. Some are saying they cooked this up for sales or whatever. Who knows. Not sure if any of the other anti-virus software for mac's have this in their systems.
