Brian Krebs at Security Fix reports that Apple appear to have made an interesting U-turn on the whole virus on
a Mac thing.
"Apple encourages the widespread use of multiple anti-virus utilities so that virus programmers have more than one application to circumvent, thus making the whole virus writing process more difficult".

I wonder if they are more concerned with malware such as Trojans - the "click here to install this to see naughty videos" type of thing. I know not. Interesting.
At least at the moment with the Mac you need to enter your admin password to screw the machine up with malware! Meanwhile my friend's Windows PC seems to have ground to a halt after simply clicking on a link in an email - seemingly one of those alert messages
from Facebook. I can't believe it got infected just like that - I shall be taking a look - but I fear the worst.
