    Dateline today... all verbatim given apologists' proclivity to call all
    facts about Apple products they don't like to be "lies by liars"...

    "For years, Apple Macintosh users basked in a confident glow of
    invincibility. *It was, as it turns out, the glow from a false light*"

    *MacOS is no less susceptible to malware than any other operating system*
    a situation made plain in recent reports on the state of cybersecurity."

    "In the 2020 State of Malware Report published by MalwareBytes,
    researchers saw a 400% increase in MacOS malware from 2018 to 2019,
    bringing it to a point at which malware detections per endpoint for
    the Macintosh were more than double those of Windows."
