I'm not an expert, but,....

Unix is the back end of OS X. It does what the front end tells it to, and sometimes does it with out being told. It really comes down to the end user.

Most larger industries today take the security issues away from the end user by implementing network defenses, and server side monitoring. Leaving most SMB, SOHO and home users to deal with the onslaught.

Any end user can give themselves a virus or run exploiting code on there machines. The idea is to get educated.

Mac OS X however doesn't do the best job when it comes to educating end users. Rather than confuse the out of you like Windows prefers to do. Mac OS X just does it's thing and leaves the questions up to you and the internet.

It is safe and secure, just like windows can be. The more holes you open, the more holes you need to monitor.
