    Apple’s devices are far better defended against malware and viruses than other platforms, but does this mean they don’t need anti-virus software?

    I’ve lost track of the number of times Mac users have told me Macs don’t need virus protection because they are inherently more robust against such attacks.

    I’ve also lost count of how many security researchers have said that Apple devices are becoming more liable to being attacked as their market share grows.
