Lucian Constantin reporting on malware for Macs:

Sophos collected malware detection statistics from 100,000 Mac computers that run its free antivirus product and found that 20 percent of them contained one or more types of Windows malware.

I don’t care what Sophos found, because I don’t trust Sophos, but what I find interesting is the above number: 100,000. Does that number mean that Sophos only has convinced 100,000 Mac users that their free anti-virus software is worth it?

And is an anti-virus customer the best yard stick for Mac users if only a fraction of Mac users actually have anti-virus software? I think not.
