Macs don’t have viruses?

My step-son said to me, people should get a mac. They have never had a virus. I have heard this from other people also. This not true in 1988  there were two Macintosh viruses the mac mag and the scores virus.

The truth of the matter is that Microsoft controls about 92% of the market while Macintosh and Linux have the rest. The people who make the viruses and attack Microsoft do so to have the most impact. Macintosh just doesn’t have enough people using it to make it worthwhile to them. If you were to investigate into it more you would probably find that Apple gives a lot of their computers to schools and colleges.

Also I should mention that phones such as the iphone and others and also ipods have had viruses.
