Historically, Mac users have been incredibly smug about the fact that most viruses infect PCs instead of Macs. Their smugness, if harnessed, could power Boise for a month. But a new strain of Koobface goes after Mac, Windows, and Linux with equal malevolence. Mac folk can still feel a bit superior in that in order to really get completely infected, you have to click OK on a window that says an outside applet is trying to access your computer. But if you do that, your whole computer is essentially handed over to the bad guys. One could argue that if you click OK to something like that you get what you deserve, but there you go.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
