[TT] Kaspersky says Apple is 10 years behind Microsoft in terms of security - Page 8  

post #71 of 210
It makes me wonder...if all macs use intel and the majority uses the exact same parts, lets say 40 different mac models any given year, that makes it a lot easier to script malware and virus' for. Coding in general is easier. So by that account are Mac's not more susceptible to virus' than windows and PC's, which often use many types of cpu's, APU's etc, and by correlation OS X? Like i said, makes me wonder.

Macs have pretty good security when you take account the users. Most malware on Mac computers will do their best to make them seem legitimate. Which includes having the user type in their system password. And from my retail experience at least 50% of the Mac users I assist have no clue what their password even is.

You must be using intelligence in a very subjective manner sir. I will tell you who I see using Macs. Soccer moms, their highschool/college daughters who couldn't think out of a paper bag and those who have more money than sense. Being rich doesn't make you smarter. Hell an entire banking industry proved that. As far as Scientific community using macs. Exactly what research stations were you in lately? The reason I ask is because I happen to frequent these types of facilities and the majority of them are not Macs. In fact Linux seems to making REAL headway there even moreso than windows. Most of the servers in such facilities are already running linux anyway.

Also as for intelligence see comment below.

I think the fact is the majority of mac users aren't smart enough to know or remember any password they had is enough.

You mean industry professionals, scientists and people educating themselves(IE: University students). If you think UNIX is for soccer moms, you need to take a step outside the basement and join the rest of the us in participating in the world.
