OS X is no longer imune to Viruses Statement – Before and After

PC World says:

Apple removed the previous statement “It doesn’t get PC viruses” and replaced it with “It’s built to be safe,” and “Safeguard your data. By doing nothing” with “Safety. Built in.”

Apple have released a guide to help keep your iOS device safe and in OS X Mountain Lion, a new feature named Gatekeeper will allow users to restrict users from installing certain apps onto their mac.
