People using a Mac or running any flavor of Linux never have to suffer from this, since virus developers have always been interested in reaching the bulk of the population, meaning the Bill Gates-loving crew. But these days are now becoming a distant memory!

The note said, “Apple encourages the widespread use of multiple anti-virus utilities so that virus programmers have more than one application to circumvent, thus making the whole virus writing process more difficult.” The note then recommends three applications: Intego VirusBarrier X5, Symantec Norton Anti-Virus 11 for Macintosh and McAfee VirusScan for Mac.
