I just recently switched over to Mac and am not sure if I should get some form of anti-virus, anti-spyware protection. I always had it for my PC's but I never hear about anything for mac. Do macs already come with some form of protection, or is there a program I can get?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
