1 in 5 Macs vulnerable to attacks?

How is that even possible? Mac's are unhackable and are unable to get a virus.

Re: 1 in 5 Macs vulnerable to attacks?

My 2005 Mac Mini with 10.6.8 is running nice and secure and will continue doing so as my media server/player until it dies.
said by Computerworld :

With Snow Leopard's retirement, 1 in 5 Macs are running an operating system that could be compromised because of unpatched vulnerabilities.

I love the FUD. That statement is true of any software.

Haha. Ya, right.

You just have to "goto fail" if you have an Apple product. If they claimed they had a rather secure OS, this would have been found immediately.

Nintendo DS and Wii to lose online play in May...

Gee, who would have thought that closely tying games to a proprietary online service would be a bad thing for consumers?

Re: Nintendo DS and Wii to lose online play in May...

Didn't they just put out a report detailing their MASSIVE losses in both customer base and income? Seems like a bad time to piss off the remaining users.
