Macworld Article on Mac Security

This was a great article on Mac security in the November Macworld magazine.

Just like most desktop security stuff, it's a lot of common sense about turning on authentication at logon, creating good passwords and safeguarding personal information.

A lot of Mac users fool themselves into thinking that Apple products are safer than Windows and Linux. To a degree, this is true. They have a better security architecture and, unlike Windows, for example, aren't the target of malware writers.

But Macs are just as susceptible to malicious access as any other platform if not locked down, patched and properly secured with adequate access management.
