    I mean is always possible to get in a hackintosh distro's a malware or virus or scripts,exploits or things like that?

    Have you trust in a OS maded like that to make online payments or other operations that require your bank card details??

    Sure, You can trust in OSX RETAIL, I recommend you to do it right, never use distros, go for RETAIL! There are some programs like myHack that can receive a retail dmg and make a bootable USB for you.
    I'm not telling that niresh, iatkos and other distros are not trustable, just that if you can use retail, then, why using distros?

    I apreciate your efforts and yes,I will use a retail dmg image but I think,not these from torrents(of course,if any md5 are available and checksum are the same then yes,I can use from torrents).
    What I gonna do when I'll be home: download retail image and I'll use Unibeast to write that image on USB stick,(I'll install Niresh distro on Vmware first of these) nd then Multibeast to install kext and other what I've need...

    security is a myth.
    i got backdoored, system compromised, et al, what not, even ddosed (countless times i got ddosed (this one is real PITA)).
    if you take proper precaution, still an avid security researcher will eventually find fault in something or someway or some means and will gain entry into your system.
    if you follow the safety measures and precautions and et al, then even M$ can give FOSS system a wink WRT to security.

    so its upto you how you design and implement and instrument the OS and rest just ......... forget it!

    and when it comes to banking and finance i will take extra ultra precautions. firewall (network &/ system) , ids (nids &/ hids), ips (nips &/ hips), root kit detection and mitigation, encrypting sensetive areas, smart cards, fde (full disk encryption), to name a few. lastly, walk and go to bank, still old form of banking is much more secure compared to online, if you are not equipped/prepared enough mentally to handle consequences.

    HTH!
    thanks!
