Viruses on the Mac, Not

OK, so we all know that although the Mac is not bullet proof, people don’t tend to write viruses for it. So apparently there was a story that there was a Trojan Horse out there for the Mac, and that we should all we running for the hills screaming.

But now, it turns out, this is not true, according to a story in Wired Magazine. According to the story, a particular virus protection company said there was a new Trojan Horse that was affecting System X. But then it turned out that it was all not true.

People don’t write viruses for the Mac not because they can’t, but because we are all such a small user base that it isn’t worth the payback. What’s the point of annoying 5% of the population when you can annoy 90% or more.
