MAC OS X Security and Virtualization security tips

Hey All,

Newbie here, this is the first topic I think I may be able to jump in  
on without feeling like complete poge. VM fusion is the top pick in my  
opinion. They seem to stay on top of updates and I seem to remember  
that there was quite abit of work done on VM code exploits. (Ed  
Skodis?)This research, I would hope has filtered down to hardening the  
code. Also my template for harding OSX is the NSA website. Just Google  
NSA+ OSX security. Also do not forget to upgrade to the new java  
engine from Sun.

Getting a new MAC intel laptop and looking for security tips from  
the pros.

I found
http://www.macgeekery.com/tips/security/basic_mac_os_x_security

If others can share good tips or other links, please send them our  
way!

BTW, I do plan on using either VirtualBox or Parallels (seemed much  
faster than Fusion in the Apple Store) - so any Virtualization  
security tips are also appreciated.

Thanks for any help.
