users who are capable of knowing a good source from a malicious one can easily avoid the potential hazard of installing malware that uses the vulnerability.
Alas, there are still folks who can't believe that a Mac could ever be hacked. They simply 'drink the cool-aid' and download stuff from anywhere and "OK" the installation of malware blindly ignoring warnings.
