    Hi guys, are you using any anti-spyware for your Macs? I believe there are few viruses that can hit OSX but I'm not sure if we're safe from spywares. Thanks guys :)

    I don't use any anti-malware apps on the Mac (for now). The best thing you can do to protect yourself from spyware is to be mindful of the apps you install and run. Only download apps from legitimate and trusted sources. Be wary whenever you're asked to type in your admin password. This advice holds true regardless of the operating system.
