Anyways, I use Windows Defender on my Windows 10, usually works flawlessly.

Until you realize that it doesn't.

Even windows defender couldn't catch the 328 viruses on my computer. :P (Don't worry, I destroyed them all with my Waluigi Launcher. XD)

Yeah the Waluigi Launcher was a joke, but there were 328 Viruses on my PC. All destroyed with Malware Bytes.

Lol, how on earth is macOS the most vulnerable? You need to give an admin authorization even to switch off the Wi-Fi. macOS is over-secure, and furthermore no hacker wants to spend time making a virus for an OS 1% of users in the world use. even Avast free is overkill on macOS.

1. The macOS userbase is much bigger than 1%, though.
2. Swiching off WiFi doesn't require Admin/sudo rights. Never did, and never will.
3. You maybe don't know, but anti virus is crucial on a Mac, even more than it is on Linux. It's really the very reason those exist at all!

The days of "only Windows needs a condom before going online" are long over, now every OS can have viruses.
Fact remains that most PC-user viruses are for Windows, but it doesn't automatically mean that Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS are totally virus-free.

Is it possible for [any] Nintendo console to get a virus?

Just a thought...

Well, exploits are considered malware also, so...
Additionally, there are some brickers to consider, though they're only affecting Homebrew-enabled devices, and are mostly PEBKAC, anyway,

I never thought of it that way myself, I always considered that consoles can't get viruses.

Well, there's Trojan.DSBrick.A and Trojan.DSBrick.A AKA DarkFader's fuckup (and the main reason why FlashMe became popular iirc.)

328 threats found =/= 328 viruses.


We have Bitdefender on our desktop PC, and dad installed Avira on the laptop he passed down to me.

It likes telling me the 'latest trends' in malware every now and then.

Well... whatever. The point is that they were undetected by windows defender.
