However, the company says: "The most notable information security occurrence of early 2013 is undoubtedly the hacking and breach of several Internet giants (Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft) and of numerous other Silicon Valley companies via a watering hole at iPhone Dev SDK."

Things are getting serious now that Macintosh is pushing Software faster, much like Microsoft did in its earlier years. This concerns me greatly, though, I haven't heard of too many viruses for Linux.
