What I find funny is that malware affecting Apple products is reported everywhere when it merely exists. In the Windows world it's only reported when it starts doing significant damage.
I'm a long term Apple user, and the truth is that there has always been malware and viruses for the Mac (the autostart worm springs to mind) and there always will be. Unfortunately most Mac users blindly carry on having made the erroneous leap of faith that Apple systems are immune to malware.
Sure, Apple systems are, by design, a harder target than windows, but most Mac heads fail to take even the most basic steps to mitigate themselves from infection.
Hell, the vast majority of Macs I come across have only one account, and that by default has to be an admin account.
Eventually there will be a hard and damaging piece of malware hit the Apple world. Unfortunately it will take that to alter the "I'm immune" culture that Mac users have.
