But 600,000+ Macs were hit by Flashback (including 274 in Cupertino). OS X's built-in protection failed @rosyna More people got their Macs hit by Flashback malware than were hit via Symantec flaws I suspect. But of course flaws should be fixed @rosyna yes, anti-virus software can be buggy. i'm not saying it's perfect. but for average person, better to have AV than none @rosyna anything on USB, or through vulnerabilities in third-party software... Nothing's perfect of course, but AV better for most folks @rosyna we'll have to disagree on that i guess. i think for many users anti-virus is a sensible choice @rosyna OS X's built-in protection doesn't prevent as many vectors of attack as third party anti-virusICYMI Pokémon Go for Windows?

@VessOnSecurity so there *wasn't* a down-to-earth explanation! :) @gcluley The NSA claimed that the outage was caused by a thunderstorm. Me, I'm blaming the cyber squirrels.
