We have gone through all that before. There are viruses that affect Macs, even though a Mac salesman will tell you otherwise. Of course, the number of viruses that affect Macs is far less but they exist just the same.

I guess, there are no reasons to make a fuss about it yet, but you can never be too careful. Install a firewall for instance, and you won't have to worry. At least for some time.

You didn't read the article... it says the firewall wouldn't stop that attack because it is basically attacking the Mac.. well, it's hard to explain for me... read the article.
