There’s no question that, today, Macs are much more secure than Windows based PCs. This is thanks to a more secure operating system, but it has also been because of a smaller user base that presented a smaller target for malware and virus writers.

Virus scare a lesson for Apple

While the small batch of Apple iPods infected with a Windows virus pose no threats to iMacs or the iPods themselves, the fact they were infected at all is a big worry.
