I am not saying Macs shouldn’t be protected with antivirus software. I am saying, the risks are very low. I do however, think the investment is worthwhile. My data on my Mac has been compromised and I therefore do use an antivirus – I prefer (Panda) but Symantec is just as good or perhaps even better.

Thank you kind sir
You can never be too safe. Adding an antivirus won’t break the bank or hurt the machine. I have been using macs for over 20 years and never once had an issue until several months back. You see, I think the major issue is as a result of increased usage of Mac operating systems. In other words, more and more attacts are now being targeted towards mac users. Couple that with even the smallest interaction with windows system users, i.e. emails, spreadsheets, etc., and you have a recipe for disaster.
Here’s a good read on the subject: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2406379,00.asp
No way I am screwing up something that is not and has never been broken!!! The moment I start installing this and that, guess what happens? Exactly.
