Kaspersky Lab Survey Finds Mac and PC Users Encounter Similar Cyberthreat Risks | CyberSecurity

Kaspersky Lab Survey Finds Mac and PC Users Encounter Similar Cyberthreat Risks | CyberSecurity | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Woburn, MA – February 10, 2015 - According to the Consumer Security Risk Survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab and B2B International, Apple users responded to have encountered cyber threats almost as often as the users of other platforms. The survey showed that 24 percent of Apple desktop users and 10 percent of Apple laptop users encountered malware during the year*, whereas the number of affected PC owners is slightly higher at 32 percent.  

Although security experts have not, thus far, found as much harmful software for OS X as they have for other platforms like Windows, malware does still aim to attack Mac devices. Malware such as ransomware was reportedly faced by 13 percent of Mac users compared to 9 percent of Windows users. There is a similar situation with threats targeting financial data: these incidents were reported by 51 percent of OS X users and 43 percent of Windows users.

In addition the survey results showcased that Mac users are generally less aware of Internet threats than Windows users. For example, 39 percent of MacBook owners have never or hardly heard of ransomware, and 30 percent do not know about dangerous malicious programs that can exploit vulnerabilities in software. By comparison, among all respondents 33 percent know almost nothing about ransomware and 28 percent are unaware of exploits.
