Re: [Security] OS X and Security?

It depends on your degree of paranoia. I have a router with a firewall, and run my Macs in Stealth mode (Sys Pref-Security). I use ClamX periodically to look for bad stuff, but run nothing otherwise. I'm careful about what I download and from where. This practice has been good enough for 10 years.

All my browsers do not run Java, and accept no 3rd party cookies. There are a lot of good browser extensions that help.
