Viruses affecting Windows and not macintosh?
    #3113249 - 09/09/04 01:56 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hi i like to know if there are any Mac users here? if so, do you get viruses from the internet? I read somewhere some viruses are designed to affect windows operating systems/pc and it won't do that on a mac.

I use both. There are viruses for both. For every 1 mac virus, there are around 24,000 windows viruses. A windows virus cannot run on a mac, and a mac virus cannot run under windows.

Also, windows is based on a single-user paradigm which makes it extremly vulnerable to virus and spyware infections. Mac OS-X is based on a multiuser paradigm which makes it much more secure against virus and spyware infections.
