Apple Backs Down on Windows Security Comparison

For years, we’ve been explaining to clients that the number of PCs in the market meant that there were more machines for hackers to target. The Mac tax (higher price of Apple products) assured that more homes would opt for lower priced PC based products; home systems are typically more vulnerable than corporate systems. It’s not that Apple products aren’t vulnerable; it’s simply that there are fewer of them to attack, so attackers have typically gone after Windows systems. The article in CRN news below suggests that perhaps Apple has discovered that they, too, are vulnerable.
