Macintosh computers userbase is growing steadily creating a larger market-share thus causing an up-rise with discovery of security vulnerabilities and also the creation of viruses has caused Mac Virus to launch. Mac Virus offers a source to keep tabs on the virus and trojan situations for the Macintosh on both Mac OS classic and Mac OS X, Apple’s latest operating system.

Most recently with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger a security expert discovered a security flaw with dashboard that would allow Safari to auto install widgets, this is the first for Apple to auto install objects that could potentially be hazardous. The advisory also included example code of the auto installing widget that could only be removed by digging into the library folders within the system, with the ability for the widgets to interact with remote hosts this could potentially cause for trojans and other security risks.
