Complete and utter nonsense. A Windows computer does not magically assume the security of MacOS X because it has an Apple logo. No MacOS X fanboy, advocate, user, or owner with half a brain would claim that it does. A Mac mini running Windows is a Windows machine with all of the security issues of any other Windows machine.
To be sure, it would be stupid in the highest degree to download MacOS X via torrents. It is conceivable that the OS could have been altered. That is not the case here. The OP downloaded Windows
drivers so because he wanted to install Windows on his computer.
