Heh. Well THAT had to happen, eventually!

I think I may have found it (http://members.rogers.com/dropzone/OsXVirus.jpg).

The number of occurances will never be what it is on the Windows platform, however. I don't ever see Apple's security and viral flaws (http://www.ciac.org/ciac/bulletinsByType/vndr_apple_bul_by_date.html) ever catching up to Microsoft's (http://www.ciac.org/ciac/bulletinsByType/vndr_ms_bul_by_date.html).

And more in recent weeks!
