Actually, that is at least in part an error. The Mac OS is based on Unix, and it has more safeguards built in. But it also helps that the Mac is not a useful target for mass worm or virus spreaders (but there are Mac malefactors as well).

Doesn’t mean a Mac cannot be broken into, but it is much more difficult than in Windows (old Windows — have no idea about Vista).
