Sure there are lots of Mac programmers. Hackers write code, crackers break into your system.
Speaking of which. Is anyone here using Realbasic to write apps with? Someone I know needs a simple invoicing and customer record app written.
This reminds me of something, up until OS X was released Mac people were pretty much left alone, not a lot of malicious viruses and stuff directed at them. I am curious, now that Macs run on a Unix OS are more systems now being 'broken' into or compromised?
If someone gets physical access to your powerbook, they could access any file that is not encrypted. FileVault can encrypt your entire home directory, so that even if someone took a copy of your harddrive onto their iPod and worked on it for ages, they'd never be able to read your personal files.

Ehh.. you should know better than this! Never say never when talking about code cracking! 128bit encryption was supposed to be unbreakable and can now be broken relatively easly if you have some resources. The only true form of encryption is quantum encoding. Everything else is beatable, its just a matter of time and money.
