Apple permissions

-> Apple's approach is to ask the user to confirm their identity before anything can be done to a system.

That might be one reason why Apple is less susceptible to malware generally than the Windows insecurity model. I'm not suggesting that Apple is perfect, they have plenty of problems. But compared to Windows it's Apples and windows.
