By the way, there's a computer OS that repeatedly claims "I'm strong! You're safe!". Do you know? Click this link and check it out. Yes. Mac OS! Watch the video below, an advertisement by Apple, which promotes its anti-Malware feature. I'm a Windows user. Actually, majority of computer users use Windows (statistics here!). Then Mac OS is more secure than Windows OS? Isn't it wonderful if the advertisement is really true!? Hey everyone! Throw your Windows out of a window! Now Malwares. Go extinct! Wait... I wonder.... is it really true??
I found a web page written about Malwares threatening Mac OS (link here!). OMG! Malwares targeting on Mac do exist! It seems Mac is safer than windows but not totally safe. Also, here's shocking quote from another page (link here!).
The general consensus among security researchers is that there's nothing about the Mac that makes it inherently more secure than Windows -- indeed, the Mac platform has been easily penetrated in the Pwn2Own hacking contest in years past. But Windows has always been a juicier target for malicious hackers because it has much larger market share than the Mac.Therefore, conclusion about this question might be that OS is safer when less people use it because less Malwares target at it!
OK. It seems you can't totally escape from threats of Malware. I'll keep using Windows anyway. I'm a nice, Eco-friendly guy. But everyone, don't stop throwing your Windows out of a Window. Please make it less popular and I can use my computer more safely.
