Analysts at Gartner have joined the throng warning Mac users to remain vigilant of security threats.

The report warns Mac users: "Don't assume your Macs are immune to security flaws". The analysts warn of a "growing number of Mac security flaws", though this warning is based on Symantec's recently-released and controversial Mac security report.

While Gartner astutely assumes little in the way of current threat, it does warn Mac users to be aware of the risks and "not to believe that the Mac will never be a target of malicious code".
