Malware and Macs

For many years, users of Apple computers have felt safe knowing that, by and large, most computer scams targeted users of PCs rather than Macs. However, with the increasing popularity of Apple computers and portable devices, more and more scammers and identity thieves have begun to tailor their illegal activities to Mac users. In the past, identity thieves often targeted their malware attacks against PCs because there were more PC users than Mac users. But now identity thieves and hackers focus much of their attention on Macs.

If you are a Mac user, you should have your computer checked for the presence of malware. Every computer user should have up-to-date security software that automatically updates and protects it from the latest malware and viruses.
