Frankly, I feel I am morally obligated to help disadvantaged users of poor quality software truly understand how their poor choices have made them vulnerable. The best way to help those individuals is to not use any software on my system designed to protect those individuals rather than myself.
Here is a quick, easy list of 47 known exploits of various anti-malware software implementations, in particular this is the results of a search for "Sophos" which offers a well known security suite for Mac OS X.Are you suggesting that Mac users should be obligated to use software that removes malware targeted at Microsoft Windows operating systems thus causing Mac users to experience performance issues and open potential exploits on their systems as well?

I know Siri is has semantic understanding and context awareness but in these instances due to a very high preference for local search I did need to state London, England for every search every time.

Apple offers a Software Update control panel within the Mac App Store for automatic download and installation of Apple system software updates. Apple provides a clear indication when installing software from third party sources on the Internet. Apple requires an administrator password when installing software unless...
Considering that Apple's customer demographic is more urban, more educated and earns more money as a result, Apple systems should be a prime target for exploits. Of course, there are many possible explanations why Apple customers aren't exploited via malicious software but, given the ever broadening demographics as well as considerable and increasing market share, the privacy and security measures provided by Apple is the most likely explanation.
