8 security tips for OS X

No one likes it when I post about Mac security, the proof is in the comments. Will that stop me? Well, if I were afraid of harsh comments I would have stopped blogging here ages ago. No, security is too important to remain silent about. It would seem that I am not the only member of the Mac web that feels this way.

Aaron Wright , writing for Apple Matters, has posted a list of eight security tips for OS X. There isn't anything new on this list, but I agree with all the suggestions (especially the last, because if you don't have that then all is lost). It is true that the only truly secure computer is turned off, not connected to anything, and stored in a vault, but following Aaron's tips will help your Mac remain secure. Isn't that what we all want?
