Mac Malware/Virus protection neccesarry?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey I'm back home and trying to get my family's computers reasonably secure My sister has a mac and I keep hearing different things about it security wise. One group thinks its unnecessary and the other says macs can be used as a vector to give viruses to windows machines. I was debating downloading Sophos or iAntivirus but wanted to see if it was really necessary first. I already have Norton Dns running on it.

Download one. I had to fix my friend's mac multiple times due to some viruses...too much porn i think.

Click jacking. Infected sites. malware can run on anything these days. Just look at stuxnet. It planted a rootkit on a PLC of industrial systems. Macs era has arrived and its going to get worse
