Mac OS X Well, it took them long enough. Apple has finally acknowledged the existence of the MAC Defender trojan, and has offered removal instructions. The company has also promised a security update to Mac OS X that will block MAC Defender and its variants from working. All this information was published in the form of a support document on Apple's website. Update: Well, that was fast. A new variant of the trojan, called Mac Guard, has been discovered. Unlike previous variants, this one does not require users to enter their administrative password.

No one has anything against you here just because you are using a Mac.

Hey now, it's not polite to lie in public comment areas.

LOL. But you are right. I can impossible talk for all of us. But for me it's sure that I have nothing against him for using a Mac. He can use whatever he like. I don't care. As long as I am not forced to use it.
