An article from PC World
reported last week that Apple quietly pulled claims of virus immunity from its website and marketing materials.
Apple's previous claim, "It doesn't get PC viruses", was quietly replaced with the message "It's built to be safe."
The changes can be seen in this image
As the article explains, the move comes in the wake of the Flashback botnet which targeted Mac computers and infected over 670,000 computers across the globe.
Hackers and virus authors have historically focused their efforts on the PC Windows platform because of its broader user base, but as more and more people make the Mac switch it seems like cybercriminal might be shining a brighter spotlight on Apple moving forward.
So my question to the IT forum world is:
Does this shift in messaging change how you feel about Apple? Does the death of their "no virus" claim lessen your desire to buy a MacBook or your trust in the company?
