I understand Macs dont have an issue with viruses at present. However, I also understand that they are susceptible to trojans.

So, if I download cracked software on a PC and scan it with Kaspersky (or any other AV) and it is clean of viruses but in particular trojans, should this be safe to use on my Mac Book Pro?

Or does cracked software still compromise the system performance?

What are your thoughts?

You mean aside from the fact that doing so is illegal?

End of story.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
