Well that's the thing in the past viruses have been written to infect boot sectors and master boot records but where is the virus to infect apple's bootloader and obliterate all mounted drives? If such a thing happened it'd be all over the news. And how many boot sector viruses have been written to affect non microsoft file systems or even in general?

Your windows partition though yes, that is at risk from potential viruses.

How hard should I look? This took me 30 seconds of googling, and is an example of a virus that affects local and networked drives:

It may not be a current "in the wild" virus (I don't have time to scour the net reading descriptions on thousands of Win32 viruses), but that's not to say one doesn't exist or could not be written.

There is no way no how that current Windows viruses, Trojans, or spywar can affect a mac

There has been at least one Windows program (let alone virus) that writes willy-nilly to the MBT, and that kind of thing would make your Mac OS just as unbootable as Windows. Of course, the argument isn't about 'it hasn't been done before' (I wonder why not?), but 'can it be done in the future'. Of course it could happen in the future.

Obviously not hard enough because you didn't find one that specifically targets the configuration in question.
This still doesn't prove that there is a virus made to target apples bootloader and toast all mounted drives. Maybe one can me made, but at this point it's unlikely.

Also some people here are assuming that people are mounting their hfs volumes with a utlitity with read\write permission and how many people are doing that?

Don't you think I know that? The whole thing is that someone is worried that there is currently one and that simply having windows around puts their entire computer at risk.
My point is that you don't have to worry about such things if you have proper computing habits especially if you don't mount your hfs drive with read\write permission.

How many viruses are written to affect mac partitioned drives? Those viruses written to affect all mounted drives assume microsoft format and files. Again show me the virus that toasts someones linux partition.

Personally I don't like dealing with what if's because you can say just about anything as what if.

I'm not trying to prove one exists now. I'm just saying it's possible. And related to that, who cares if it targets the bootloader? If it trashes that, big deal. It's the data on the filesystems themselves that is important to pretty much everyone. The bootloader is a) easily replaced and b) not an attractive target for virus writers.

Gee, I don't know. It's been, what, 36 hours since Boot Camp was released? Listen, if you want to make the argument that no such virus exists today, great. I think that's a sound argument and I'm inclined to agree since I don't care to read up on a thousand different viruses to see if one exists. But it's pretty carefree to say that it's not possible or not likely without a crystal ball, given that it's happened before.

So you're saying it's impossible for a virus to erase a text file on a mounted filesystem, because it has to be in "Microsoft" format? Do you know what that even means?

My point is that it's not your typical windows was installed first multiboot system.
That being said it's just something we'll have to see and not start crying the sky is falling right this second. Just having XP around doesn't automatically put all your other OS' partitions at risk. Otherwise we'd be hearing more linux users for example trashing their XP partition for that reason alone. There has been plenty of time for something to happen with that type of setup.

I meant .exe files compared to .app files, etc. for example the one virus you showed me infects all .exe files. But would a typical PC virus writer who doesn't own a mac (the majority of them) even know what to do with an app file if it where somehow made accessible to windows? I wasn't talking about deleting a randon text file and you don't need a virus to do that.

It still assumes there will be enough people to mount their hfs drives in windows to make a signifigant impact. Sure in the future anything is possible but that shouldn't stop you from taking advantage of this dual boot capability if you feel you could make use of it.

ok, lets run with this idea:

wanton desctruction virus that also deletes all mounted drives?

that way they get the best of all worlds, and can try and destroy anything and everything...


and linux isnt (as far as i can see) as high profile as apple and OSX. so hackers are now more likely to target OSX, especially with its popular status as the be all and end all of avoiding viruses (not true).

Hell let's take it one step further, wanton destruction virus that deletes all mounted and unmounted drives, eats all the food in your fridge and runs off with your gf! =p

P.S. Linux also shares the status as be all and end all of avoiding viruses and there probably won't be enough mac dual booters who mount their hfs volumes to represent a bigger market than dual booted linux boxes anyway.

As Apple said, it puts your computer at risk of everything that XP is - including a random virus that could harm your Mac OS X partition. Are you claiming otherwise?

And there are tons of cases where installing Windows, running certain Windows programs, getting certain Windows viruses, etc. has trashed the Linux install sitting next to it - there is a legitimate if unlikely risk.

There have been Mac viruses before, so obviously the 'typical PC virus writer' doesn't even have to enter into it.

I really do have to conclude that no one cares about causing destruction. Or at least, no one who really knows what they're doing. The most destructive malware to date has been clumsy at best. A well-designed attack would use several different vectors (preferably including more than one 0-day exploit), and could be in control of virtually all vulnerable machines on the Internet in under 15 minutes, write itself to firmware so it survives OS reinstallation, and gradually corrupt data in subtle ways so that nothing appears to be wrong for quite a while, giving the bad data time to make its way into backups.

But it's all about maintaining botnets, to send spam and run DDoS attacks (for protection rackets).

For what? OS 9 or below? All the so called OS X viruses made lately are more like social engineering than viruses. Hell someone could write a bash script to rm -rf / after asking for your password and pass it off as a virus.

Apple didn't specifically say that the virus could put your OS X partition at risk. It's common sense that your XP partition would be at risk.

Show me one case where windows viruses have trashed the linux install sitting next to it. It's easy to just say it just like saying well, monkeys will fly out of my butt.

Well, no, they said it puts your Mac at risk of the same kind of attacks, such as this Word Macro virus that clobbers the MBR (and probably makes your computer unable to boot and erases the partition table - try it and see!). Again, I'm not saying that there is indeed something known to clobber a Mac OSX or Linux partition (not being able to boot and having to scrounge for partition info is bad enough), just that it's possible, which it is. Do you dispute that?

Take a look here at:

Type: Macro
Systems Affected: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP
Systems Not Affected: Windows 3.x, Microsoft IIS, Macintosh, Unix, Linux

It's not even a big threat in the wild! Although I have said in the future probably anything is possible but it's best not to live your life in fear of the future. Also If I've said it before I'll say it again also it is possible to avoid viruses with proper computing habits.
