sounds like when my friend used the windows update function....and it deleted some of the code for his log-on scripts. malware on ILLEGAL copies of the new OS...who would of thought that one cough *microsoft genuine advantage*
The really sad part about this whole thing is that most mac users (gotta be somewhere close to 80%) don't run any type of malware protection software or firewalls (aside from a basic router, i.e. Airport Extreme), and a lot of this has to do with the Apple's "I'm a Mac" and other ads about how this sorta thing just doesn't happen to Macs. I've been in many schools that have rooms full of Macs that aren't protected, and they say that's why they bought them instead of PC's. They didn't want to have to spend the extra time and money on security and malware protection.
wifiwolf i hear what u are saying, dont need to convert me i am an somewhat of an avid gamer on my desktop and love my bluescreens. One of the biggest reason that i bought the mac was that i wanted the free ipod touch, even then apple is screwing you over because they are going to release new ipods this september or something so they probably needed to liquidate inventory or something
[citation][nom]Socrates047[/nom]i just bought a new macbook and am quite unfamiliar withe the macs, do you guys think that i should upgrade.[/citation]Not until 10.6.1 or 10.6.2. You never want to be one of the first to install the first release of a major piece of software, at least not on the primary machine you use. I don't care if it's from Apple, MS, or anyone else (except me, my software always* works correctly the first time).

Maybe this is divine retribution, maybe a French virus writer had a iPhone explode in his face and he decided that Windows isn't the real enemy. Thank you virus writers for proving that something based on Unix isn't all "holier-than-thou"
When I say virus I mean trojans, malware, shitware, etc before you all get arsey..
