Where OS X security stands after a volatile 2012

Where OS X security stands after a volatile 2012 | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
And where are we going with OS X security in 2013?

 

2012 was an "exciting" year for OS X security—at least if you're a security expert or researcher. There were plenty of events to keep people on their toes. Although Apple took some egg on the face for some of them, overall, the company came out ahead when it came down to keeping users safe.

 

At least that's the opinion of some security researchers who followed OS X developments throughout the year.

 

A MUST READ!!!

OS X Malware: A Steady Trickle

OS X Malware: A Steady Trickle | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

I’m guessing that the myth of OS X invulnerability to malware is pretty much busted by now: at any rate, there has been wave after wave of OS X-related malware reports in the past week or two.

 

Sophos were the latest big name to weigh in on the OSX/Imuler malware that DrWeb, Intego, ESET and your humble scribe have already commented on, though Sophos calls it Imuler-B and both Intego and ESET call it Imuler.C.

 

The Java attack has also been linked to bot-generated Twitter spam targeting Tibetan activist conversations by including hashtags like “#Tibet” and “#freetibet”, presumably in order to drown out political dissent.
