I always thought that very few if any virusus are written for Macs because of the filing system they use in the sense that with Windows if you infect 1 part then the virus can easily spread throught the machine where with Macs the way in which the file system is designed if one part gets infected its impossible to spread throughout having said that im certainly no expert and im sure someonelse on here will have a more definate answer.
