I have an iMac running 10.3. On monday I am joining all those already with broadband, so now I am thinking even more about security. I know that macs have an inbuilt firewall. Is this fine, or do I need to install something like norton to be sure ?  I do have Norton antivirus already. Will this be enough ?

I would run an antivirus program (such as norton) just as a general security practice and to be on the safe side. Most viruses don't target macs, but they do exist so running AV would be a good idea.

Thank's for the info. As I said I do have antivirus, and I think I will put A firewall onto my machine. Use everything thats avaliable I guess. Once again, thanks.
