Can a Mac computer get a virus?

The short answer is “yes.” However, it’s less likely for a Mac computer to experience viruses than a Microsoft Windows computer. However, since Macs are gaining popularity, viruses are becoming more common. Also, if you install any software, plug-ins, or other add-ons that are connected to the Internet, you may become vulnerable to viruses. The most common ways that viruses attack a Mac computer is through a third-party browser and browser plugins like Adobe Reader, Flash, and Java. Some of the current anti-virus programs that work on Mac are: Comodo, ESET NOD32, Kaspersky, McAfee, Network Associates, RAV, Sophos, and Symantec (Norton).
