You always hear that Macs aren't as prone to virus and malware attacks as PC's, why? I just finished dealing with some nasty viruses, trojans and such, and think Iv'e got them licked (fingers crossed). As an example, lets say I'm running a windows based machine, and download an mp3 file, and attached with it is a trogan that wreaks havock with your web browser, hijacking it, not being able to get to certain sites, and so on. If you were to open the same file on a Mac OS, or Linux based machine, would the virus that is attached just go into oblivion? or would it just be there as an inert piece of code, not being able to do anything? Is it something about the instruction set of the virus, or trogan that isn't recognisable within the other OS's? Thanks.
