    Post Is the Mac Really Safer Then a PC


    Everyone claims the mac is safer but realisticly isn't it less safe because most people on a mac are not as cautious as pc users. Pc users are running software firewalls to see what connections are coming in and out
    , sandboxing type software and other security type programs.
    If someone personally knows you are on a mac seems they could target you better since they know you proably won't be looking for anything out of the ordinary.

    What do you guys think

    Hacks and exploits are written to be used. The hard facts are that there are nowhere near as many OSX users as there are Windows users. If you were coding some nastiness, you would want to have a large demographic to sample/target.

    That is why PC's get the bulk of it.
