What do you think?

AMSTERDAM: A new computer worm emerged on Tuesday which broke the speed record from the announcement of a security vulnerability in Microsoft's Internet Explorer to a full-blown virus that spreads in the wild.

The vulnerability was discovered and made public by two hackers with aliases "ned" and "SkyLined" on Friday, and only four days later a worm exploiting the weakness was developed and set loose, several virus-trackers reported.

Now that I got Your attention, Here's the whole story from Security News Portal.

see .. and that would be why I've had my mac for 3 years and it's stayed up to standard current requirements .. versus my pc I've replaced twice in the same time frame just so it will run fast enough to be useable...

Ha,ha, silly Mac head. You couldn't be more wrong. Where as windows has, potential vulnerabilities, so does every version of Linux, and MAC.
See? that’s what I love about MAC, people. MAC makes a machine marketed toward the technically incompetent. Before you know it you have a bunch of idiots acting superior, not realizing that a competent hacker could Pwn their machine just as easily as a properly configured windows 2k or 2k3 box. But whatever makes you feel better.
