Yes, I knew someone would take issue with what I said. Any computer can get a virus or Trojan Horse. But, my response was simply you're not going to find any normal person who's every had one (not in many, many years anyway), so you won't get any responses to your original question, as its just not a problem. Curtis is right that you should take precautions anyway, and that the Mac is a less attractive target to hackers. I do believe the Mac tends to be more secure than other systems right out of the box. If it wasn't relatively secure, there would be some virus' problems even with its small market share in non creative industries (just not hundreds of attempts a day like in the PC world). None the less, keep up-to-date as Curtis mentions.
