The perils and problems of the Windows PC seems to be flowing out to other platforms that don't have this issue.
Imagine my surprise at someone telling me my linux box needed a firewall. They seemed to not have any grasp about how /etc/services and the inet superdemon worked so I had to, as nicely as possible ask them to describe what this firewall would do for me.
Reading up on Mac and saw some newgroups where there are rumblings that "some" worms and viruses may be directed to OS X?....any substance to these rumors?
I so, it must be negligable compared to threats to PC's?....also a neophile on OS X and wondering what, if anything is needed in the way of firewalls,anti-virus and spyware programs....yuk more bloatware!
