Tutorial: How to protect your Mac against viruses


Malware is short for malicious software and generally refers to any program that was installed on your Mac without your knowledge or approval.

The discovery of the Flashback malware sparked headlines around the globe that our little corner of the digital world was no longer safe; that we couldn't hide behind "security through obscurity"; that soon, we'll have a platform that will be just as vulnerable as Microsoft's, and purchasing anti-virus software will be the norm.

We don't know about you, but we've heard it all before. Ever since the birth of OS X we've been told that any day now, viruses will appear and wipe that smug look off our faces for having thought our system was more secure than the competition's. Well, it hasn't happened yet and considering the direction Apple is taking, chances are, these predictions of doom won't be realised anytime soon.
