Mac users beware -- the bad guys have you in their malware cross hairs. Organized criminal gangs arrived at Apple's doorstep for the first time in 2007 with malware tools in hand to intentionally steal money, according to a recent report from IT security and control firm Sophos. With proof that hackers are extending their efforts beyond Windows, Sophos has warned computer users of all operating systems not to be complacent about security.

Riiiiiiiiight. We'll be hacked any day now. What happened last month, year, etc... when we were going to be hacked? Nothing, that's what.
Lame. Why not ask someone NOT trying to sell us useless software that we don't need?
Wake me when there is actually an exploit on a Mac.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
