Some users even tout their security advantages with a rather grandiose utopian delusion of permanency. It won’t last forever. Mac OS X and GNU/Linux continue to gain market share on the desktop, but the true mark of their success, unfortunately, will likely come in the form of the first widespread malicious software.

I didn’t think it would be so soon! Sophos has recently listed a profile of a trojan for Mac OS X. Okay, so it’s not so widespread. Details are lacking, and I don’t know if it’s even been spotted in the wild at all or not.
