Mac OS X Targeted By Clever New Trojan

Mac OS X Targeted By Clever New Trojan | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
A new Trojan dubbed 'OSX/Crisis' has been discovered which takes sneaky to a whole new level for infecting Mac OS X systems.

 

Andrew, director of security operations for nCircle, declared, “Mac malware is no joke. Despite Apple’s marketing hype about security, it should be obvious to everyone that their devices are susceptible to malware. Earlier this year the Flashback Trojan infected hundreds of thousands of Macs. The new OSX/Crisis malware is another Apple wake up call.”

 

For many Mac users, though, there is still a disconnect between realizing that the threat landscape has shifted, and actually doing something about it.

 

===> Mac users need to embrace the mindset that has been conditioned into Windows users over time, and install antimalware and other security tools to proactively protect against new attacks. <===

 

 

 ===> “Mac users are going to have to learn to be more security minded and Apple needs to step up and offer users practical, effective security support.” <===
