Renown Hacker Says Windows Is More Secure Than Mac

Famous hacker Marc Maiffret, now chief security architect at FireEye, says Windows is more secure than Mac.

Speaking about Apple Maiffret said, "It's even a little scarier with them because they try to market themselves as more secure than the PC, that you don't have to worry about viruses, etc. Anytime there's been a hacking contest, within a few hours someone's found a new Apple vulnerability. If they were taking it seriously, they wouldn't claim to be more secure than Microsoft because they are very much not. And the Apple community is pretty ignorant to the risks that are out there as it relates to Apple. The reason we don't see more attacks out there compared to Microsoft is because their market share isn't near what Microsoft's is."

you guys are a bunch of fanboys!!!!!! GET OFF APPLES NUTS!!! they are not perfect. he clearly says that you dont hear about apple virus/malware attacks because windows has the majority of the market. so why would someone waste their time trying to get shit from apple computers when most people use a pc.

C'mon... I am not sure to say that 100% sure, but I have a mac for 3 years now, and I never had a virus or malware, and I already fixed 25 computers by the same situation in windows... soooo... maybe Mac has issues, but the hackers are nicer... or who actually pays for this??? Norton, Mcafee, Panda... hummmm conspiracy jajajajaja...just kidding...

It's funny, if you look closely at the pic he has an Apple laptop right in front of him. Not sure but that looks like either a MacBook or PowerBook. So if Windows is more secure, then why is the worlds best ex-hacker using an Apple? Kindof makes you wonder
