Hi all, 

I am planning to invest in a mac. Having been on windows for most of my life, it will be quite daunting to adapt to the new OS. In terms of viruses, i heard that there are no viruses known to have infested the mac OS. Is that still true? But can anyone explain to me the thunderbolt vulnerability. How can it be remedied?
