    Nope. You have to do it to yourself to end up with the malware.

The same goes at places I've worked which have always had security installed, in the last 12 years I've never seen anything come up.

    I have seen numerous cases of various types on infection on Windows - generally on systems where the user is completely unaware of any sort or routine maintenance and their anti-virus software (if they have any) is either outdate or has been compromised. The worst case took me about 3 days to correct and in the process infected another system on my network that had corporate level up to date antivirus software running.

    The only virus I have personally seen on a Mac in about 25 years of using them was the cDEV virus back in the days of System 7 and 3.5" Floppies - or maybe it was System 6.
