Apple admits that Mac OS users can get viruses

secmartin writes "Since a couple of days, Apple has been warning users that Mac OS might benefit from using a virus scanner. Their security page now offers this warning: "However, since no system can be 100 percent immune from every threat, antivirus software may offer additional protection."

Microsoft has welcomed Apple to this new reality in a blog post by one of their senior Security Advisors, and antivirus vendors are already taking advantage at the new sales opportunities. So are you already using a virus scanner on your Mac? If not, will this change in Apple's communications change your mind?"
