No No jimbo it can't be. Are you posting a joke? Is it April 1?
What is the world coming to?

A Apple product infected by the Chinese.

I can see Oberlin College setting up Apple rescue centers for the computer and withdrawal centers for the owners. It will probable be declared a disaster zone and send FEMA to help.

This is going to be very painful for the special people.

Oberlin College is a private institution that was founded in 1833. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 2,894, its setting is suburban, and the campus size is 440 acres. It utilizes a 4-1-4-based academic calendar. Oberlin College's ranking in the 2015 edition of Best Colleges is National Liberal Arts Colleges, 23. Its tuition and fees are $48,682 (2014-15).

A big reason for the problem Windows has with malware is it's popularity. A malware author will wish to achieve the greatest results for the effort expended. Windows is a big target.

But with the rising popularity of Apple products many malware authors are beginning to see them as a worthwhile target. And considering that Apple has only limited experience with security exploits and that most such systems have little or no protection Apple malware could infect a lot of computers.

I agree. I have a paid anti-virus on my iMac but I have always felt it to be unnecessary. But that might soon change I'm afraid.

The Apple users I know; if their computer gets infected a new computer is one phone call away to daddy.

Considering how many counterfeit devises are in China you have to wonder if it's an inside job of Apple
