The Spam Thread!
Well, for what it's worth, dozens of malware has sprung up since I last said that there were only 6 malware for the Mac. There are supposedly hundreds, but I say dozens because most of the numbers are clones of the Mac* fake antimalware package.

Anyone using a Mac, get an antivirus! You're no longer safe! If you can't afford any at least grab ClamXav or Sophos Antivirus Home Edition!

In the meantime, BingoBeaver is healthy again. His faulty RAM bar has been replaced, he has a USB3 SuperSpeed PCIe card added for those days (making him the important box when it comes to handling USB3 devices, just like how Kiki is now the important box for handling Thunderbolt devices), and surprisingly, the 4DXWave now works. The KVM is now connected to a PS/2 to USB keyboard/Mouse converter, and an additional PS/2 keyboard was added.

Now I just need to pick out an OS to replace Mac OS X Snow Leopard. I'm thinking of Illumos, but it apparently doesn't have USB3 support yet. Yet another Linux? I might go that route (have half the mind of dropping Slackware in, or maybe try Arch) or maybe even FreeBSD.

For one thing, I had to blame those gullible users who fall prey to such fake antivirus scams. I did install an AV package on my Hackintosh, being that I had to scan every thumb drive for Windows malware such as autorun worms.

Well, I have to agree. But then, some people are just overly paranoid, especially little old ladies.

Still thinking over what OS I should drop onto Bingo. Just realized that Illumos doesn't support USB3 yet, and neither does FreeBSD release. Looks like it's either wait until the next version of FreeBSD or slap another Linux distro on.

I think anyone who thought it was impossible to get a virus on a MAC is silly, there just is less of a threat because there is just less people making viruses for the system. Smile

To be honest, I'm suprised at this! Sure, there are less people using MAC OS X then Windows, but more people with good amounts of disposable income tend to use MAC's, I feel.

That's not to say you can't get one used or anything, like I did and other's have done I'm sure. Old ones, and the other ways of getting ahold of one cheaper.
