Mac’s now getting infected with BOTS are launching DoS attacks

One to file under it had to happen eventually… Mac’s seem to now have been made the target of BOTS (or iBOTS) that are launching DoS attacks across the internet. Seems like the whole argument are more secure because we don’t get worms/viruses is starting to look a whole lot more tarnished… It will be interesting to see if having vastly more number of security vulnerabilities will make them a much more appealing target for hackers as they are an easier target even thought the have lower market share.

Time to install you AV software on the Mac’s… wait… hang on… is there such a thing????
