MacBooks are so hot right now. And so is Mac OS X malware

Just an observation

I don't remember "malware" being so widespread on OS X until Chrome came along... Maybe this is coincidental? I know there are many dodgy extensions for Chrome, I assist users with browser problems daily on OS X, and more often than not it's Chrome causing issues. There is one EBay extension in particular that really changes the UI of Chrome... buttons hidden, homepage hijacked, search engine can't be changed etc.

As far as I know, the <user> has to install malware on OS X. If this is not true, do let me know, I have some fanboi's that need some schooling...
