G'day everyone,

I'm relatively new to the Apple platform, and I have a question regarding Windows virus' and Mac's.

Whilst I'm aware that Mac's aren't susceptible to being infected by a Windows based virus, what I don't know is whether a Mac connected to a Windows domain can host a Windows specific virus.

Specificially I am asking regarding the recent Conficker virus' infecting Windows XPSP2, but I would be keen to hear if anyone knows of other virus' that behave like this.

If anyone knows whether this can happen, and how it happens, then I'ld greatly appreciate any help and information you could offer.


NB: I have been doing some research and have found that it is possible for Macro virus imbedded within MS applications to be hosted on mac's without infecting them.
QUOTE Thanks
