Mac vs. PC Security | CNET News

In their words: Experts weigh in on Mac vs. PC security | InSecurity Complex – CNET News

Good article… essentially PCs have more security due to the amount of hackers targeting them. There are gaping holes in Mac security, particularly the Safari browser, but because there are so few compared to PCs the actual threat is minimal.

Interesting quote… (emphasis mine)

Eric Johanson, security researcher: “If you look at the number of published vulnerabilities in software and the number of users and compare Windows versus Mac OS you will discover that Mac OS has far more published vulnerabilities per user than Windows does so I think the data pretty much speaks for itself.”
