Often people will say "Linux and Mac don't have problems with viruses just because they are not popular," .... they are wrong. As we see here. MS simply does not take security very seriously because they expect the users of their software to know about how computers work. This contradicts the entire reason Windows became popular in the first place, it was originally designed to make it possible for the computer illiterate people to use computers, thus increasing the demand for computers and making them a household appliance. Now they are ignoring that fact, possibly out of arrogance or complacency, and Apple, as well as open source devs, are stepping up to the plate to, basically, snag all of the customers from MS.
