    Default Mac Defender WARNING

    For all you Mac users out there - a word of warning. Some of you might have heard of this nasty mac virus - "MacDefender".
    I found it first hand yesterday after clicking on a link to a site that came up in a google search i was doing. Rather than take me to the site it downloaded this macdefender.pkg and started trying to get me to instal. Force quit it and delete it ASAP!
    Unfortunately it seems that macs are no longer the virus free playgrounds we have enjoyed for so long.
    Cheers, Dave

    Gee thanks Dave - Ive often wondered why weve been so fortunate as Mac owners and why the Macs havent been targeted - with the continued rise in Apples sales and profile I guess its to be expected - - ive been using Macs for over twenty years and never a hint of a virus - thanks for the tip off

    cheers
