I don't know. Perhaps you could find us an example of one of those posts by a "devout Mac users who say that it is invulnerable".
No software is invulnerable. Some (OSX/Linux) is more resistant to such attacks than others (MS-Windows).
I did not see indications that any of the hacks displayed here were able to escalate the privilages of the attackers. That makes a big difference as to whether the attack is useful to criminals and those who run botnets. being able to dump some of your personal information is bad enough. Having your computer turn into a zombie is something entirely different.
You must not be around here much. For years that what Mac users claim. If you really want to find them look way way back in my post history.

As for-q-clinton said in post # 26, although you have been a member since ‘98, you mustn’t visit the site very much.
There have been marathon threads about how wonderful Mac is and Microsoft Windows is trash. :-)
All of the rest that you have said is true. I know this because I have been in the computer business since 1962. :-)
