I can’t believe that we’re still having a discussion over whether or not the bad guys have begun targeting Mac users. I really can’t. I’m truly staggered by the fact that people who have been around computers for decades and who are supposedly keeping their finger on the tech pulse are still clinging on for dear life to the notion that Mac is somehow immune of invulnerable to modern malware.
John Gruber, the guy behind the Mac site Daring Fireball says that those who dare to suggest that there’s a problem are crying wolf. To back up his ‘claim’ (and I can’t put enough quotes around that word so I won’t bother trying) he pulls quotes from the internet going all the way back to 2005. His point seems to be that because someone made a prediction in 2005 that a wave of Mac malware was coming, and it didn’t materialize, then it can’t possibly happen in 2011 either because of some ancient lore that says that things never change and the past always equals the future.
It’s a shame the world isn’t that simple.
