    Steve, I'm Linux power user as well, BUT Linux and Mac users might want to re-evaluate their belief that they are immune - it simply isn't true. While it is true that it is much HARDER to infect a *Nix based machine, a good programmer/hacker can still give you a bad day now and then (take it from someone who has chased more than his share of script kiddies off his servers).

    I am aware that there is a very limited threat. Nobody regardless or OS is immune. Run secure software and a good firewall and it is unlikely you'll ever have a problem. Windows users don't stand a snowballs chance in Hades.

    The computer security industry buzzed Thursday with warnings that more than a half-million Macintosh computers may have been infected with a virus targeting Apple machines.
    Hackers trick Mac users into downloading the virus by disguising it as an update to Adobe Flash video viewing software.

    Computer users, no matter their operating systems of choice, need to protect machines with tactics including up-to-date anti-virus programs and avoiding risky habits such as opening files or clicking links from unknown sources.
