Locking Down your Mac

I’m getting a little worried about my Macs in my house now.  According to MacRumors, even IBM is looking into outfitting some of it’s departments with Macs.  Or this story about this article about an upcoming Gartner research report from (tuaw.com.) All of this will increase the number of Macs out there – which isn’t a bad thing in of itself, but it makes the Mac a bigger target for those never-do-wells out there.  Let’s not for get this story either:  MacBook Air gets seized in 2 minutes (engadget)

This article by Ars Technical, Keeping your Mac locked down: a Mac OS X security primer is a must read.  If anything install the free OS X version of ClamAV  and then go purchase and install Little Snitch.
