Author: JT Smith

Seattle Times: "Mac owners look smug when their PC brethren discuss system security and computer viruses. "I
have a Mac," they are wont to smirk. "I don't have a problem." Not quite, my friends.

innards, but it's not time to let down our guard. In fact, Macs remain susceptible to Microsoft Office
macro viruses, network attacks and snoopers who want to intercept data."
