Mac users 'too smug' over security

An argument that's starting to become more and more apparent is that Mac user's believe their computers are immune to spyware and viruses. The truth is they are susceptible. The question is how much?

Most Mac users believe that the risks are very low, but the reality is that there are very few Mac spyware and viruses because there are less Mac's out there.

"They can't spread as easily, and most would only be installed by a careless user clicking "Accept" on a dodgy install dialog, but the regular stream of security fixes from Apple's software update service makes it clear that there are real dangers."

As quoted from a BBC News article.
