Sheesh, most days I can’t think of anything to post, and this week I keep double posting. Anyway, I thought this was important enough to generate that ‘extra’ post for today.

According to this article on the Washington Post “Security Fix” blog, Apple has announced that they recommended Mac users install anti-virus software. If you’re a Mac user, the article lists several anti-virus programs Apple recommends you can choose from to install.

Pity, the day has finally arrived when Mac users are just as hostage as the rest of … well, I was going to say ‘us’ but considering I now use a Mac amongst my PCs, I have to heave a sigh. I really liked not having to worry about such things on my little iBook.

Apples no longer virus-free?

    Well, I’ve had my Imac for three years and the Macbook for a year and never had a problem. Also, the guy in that article says he’s never had a blip so it’s still not the problem that it is with PCs.

    THanks for that article. I downloaded the free viruscan though the spy program wasn’t free, just a free trial. I still think it’s better safe than sorry.
