exactly, i'm going to guess it's the latter.

the bbc did an experiment a while back where they left a computer connected to the internet for 24 hours and recorded the number of attempts that were made to access it. the number was somewhere around 1,500.

Attempts and actual access are different things. heck, a ping is classed as an attempt simply because it invokes a response from the other PC which proves it is there.

I remember that, they set up a honeypot trap, and noted all the access attempts that were made.

I think the stats are currently that if you connect an unsecured computer to the internet, then within 15 minutes an unauthorised access attempt will be made.

Part of my job is to analyze honeypot data. We have a fairly large honeynet and pull in a lot of traffic. Its fun (for a little while at least :p )

As for the threadstarter, you need to be a little bit clearer on what exactly happened.

Get a Mac and put it behind a good firewall.

Done.

Easy!

Windows sucks camel ass.

The first day I used a Mac in years it crashed twice.

Although Macs are safer from viruses simply because most hackers don't program for Mac because they have a much smaller user base. By that logic he should just switch to Linux.
