Macs need to patch too!, Author: Swa Frantzen

 

E.g. a Trojan was recently discoverd that targets Macs with unpatched java flaws. See the Intego writeup.


Not only that.  Microsft Office, Adobe Flash, shockwave, reader or acrobat all need to get update too.

Combien de temps le mythe de la sécurité Mac va-t-il encore tenir?

Combien de temps le mythe de la sécurité Mac va-t-il encore tenir? | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Utrecht, le 27 novembre 2013 - Selon une récente enquête de Kaspersky Lab, il existe de fortes probabilités qu’un nombre croissant d’utilisateurs Mac soient la proie de menaces d’Internet. La quantité des logiciels malveillants ciblant les Mac a augmenté de 50% au cours des douze derniers mois. Pourtant, plus d’un tiers (35%) de tous les utilisateurs Mac pensent à tort être protégés contre les menaces numériques.

Le nombre des propriétaires de Mac continue de progresser, et par conséquent l’intérêt des cybercriminels pour cette plate-forme s’amplifie lui aussi. Les virus informatiques, chevaux de Troie, astuces de phishing et autres menaces d’Internet visant cette plate-forme sont d’ores et déjà en circulation, en grands nombres qui plus est. Les utilisateurs sont ainsi tout aussi vulnérables que les utilisateurs de PC Windows.
