Im sorry, but anything that involves direct access to a device pretty much equals badness not matter the OS. I read about a new keylogger for wireless (not bluetooth) keyboards, you can buy them for like £20! As for image files, they are the same as running an exe file sometimes. Most people getting infected are those downloading illegal software! Lessons learned - Keep you computer secure and locked up Do not download random illegal files off the internet Ensure to eat cake at all times.
