In the fall of 2007, a nasty bit of code came into the wild that changed critical domain-name server information on infected Macs. And while major viruses remain mostly a theoretical problem for Apple, Mac owners do now face threats from broader nasties like malicious cookies, spyware and keystroke loggers.
Enter Las Vegas-based SecureMac. The company makes a low-cost, small-business-ready security product called MacScan that, for $30, offers reasonable safety against the standard Mac security issues. The sad fact is, Apple users have to get over their loss of security innocence. It's only a matter of time before something truly hideous happens on these lovely machines.
