Not just "rare". There are no viruses for the Mac other than the old Microsoft Office viruses.

There are some other trojans for the Mac but they are rare and are not really found in the wild. Of course, those need the user's assistance to run as well.

One of the advantages of Sean Shao ssMacWindows is that he has made available a feature on the Mac that prevents key loggers. I've implemented it in the 1.1.x version of InfoWallet. I wish there was a similar feature for Windows. If anyone knows of an option for Windows please let me know.
