MACs and Viruses

Do Mac’s get viruses?

This is the age old question.

The short answer…YES.

The long answer:

Mac’s can get viruses, just like a Windows-based PC can.

The difference is this:

  • Mac’s don’t get viruses even close to as often as PC’s.
  • There is very little support for virus removal with a Mac.
  • Some Mac viruses are difficult to detect.
  • Mac viruses are getting more prevalent and damaging.
  • Bottom line is this…Mac’s are great machines that have a much smaller risk of infection than PC’s. Users should not get the false impression that Mac’s are full-proof.
