New Attack Exploits Flaw in Apple Computers

I use a Mac at home and at work and I appreciate how much more secure they are than Windows computers. But they're not invulnerable. This article from the Washington Post talks about a new danger to Mac users.

This is another reminder to keep your computer updated on the latest security patches and antivirus definitions. And yes, there is a free antivirus program for the Mac called ClamXav.

To update your computer, go to the Apple menu in the upper left and select Software Update. I do this several times a week, in addition to a weekly automatic update. It doesn't take long and the payoff is worth it.
