There is no such thing as invulnerable device whatever brands of laptop,computer ,phone, iphone, as long as your connected to internet there is always the threat to get virus, spyware, trojan, worm, and other suspicious programs running in your systems with you knowing it.

So just be cautious on what site your visiting, what types of files you send, accept or even downloading software from website that you don't trust. As long as you use the internet for your computer there is always the virus to look for, well in case of apple they have put of some strategy on which they can guard their devices from virus attacks on which is not done in other devices like windows.

Make sure to upgrade and update your antivirus programs that are installed in your computer,iphone, or ipad so that you will have guard for your system and also you will be more equipped on fighting these viruses.

Yes, that’s true. There’s no such thing as invulnerability and to think that Smartphones nowadays are very similar to computers, it is very easy for experienced programmers to infiltrate their way in to make the device go wild. Like what happened on Macintosh computers, before it seems that programmers are less interested on creating codes that will penetrate Mac computers and corrupting its processes. But sometime last year while browsing the web, I accidentally read an article saying that there is an incident where a Mac computer got infected with a certain virus. Although it’s an isolated case, it still happened.

Even in the early models of Nokia phones, viruses are very rampant. There is a virus that can send random text messages to the contacts stored on the phone without the owner’s knowledge while rapidly draining the battery and permanently damaging it in the long run. If mobile phones are secured from being infected by a virus then software companies wouldn’t dare design and offer antivirus software or application since it will only be useless in the first place and a waste of money.
