    Does anyone have any good suggestions for virus protection for Mac's? My fiance has a Mac and she has just been using the protection that came with the computer.

    Do you have any good suggestions on what to use and maybe a link to where you can buy it?

    I thought her Mac was immune to viruses... this disturbs me.

    "Rival Symantec rated the worm a low-risk security threat."

    And you don't have to wait for "patch Tuesday" to see the automatic security update arrive on your Mac.
