I’m a pretty big Apple fan boy and love my iPod and my PowerBook G4 (hope to upgrade to a Intel Macbook Pro one of these days). One of the misconceptions about Mac’s is that they are more secure then Windows…while in a way this is true (they are not as targeted as Windows because of a lower market share), however, they are still vulnerable to recent OS exploits if not patched and other things that are easily overlooked by the average Mac user.

Here is a good article talking about basic security procedures you should use for your Mac. These are things easily overlooked like creating a non-administrator account for daily use and locking up your Mac with a security cable in a shared or public area.
