5 times as much Mac malware this year

If you're worried about hackers and cybercriminals, but you think you're safe because you've got a Mac, you need to change your thinking fast. Macs are no longer the invulnerable devices they once were.

Years ago, Macs were remarkably safe, compared to Windows PCs. Part of the reason for that is hackers didn't spend much time attacking them because they were relatively unpopular.

That has changed. In fact, Macs are one of the few bright spots in the PC marketplace. While overall PC sales were down 7.7% from third quarter last year, according to Gartner, Mac sales were up 1.5%, and rank as the No. 4 computer brand.

Hackers have been having a field day with Macs for at least the past year. We've been telling you a lot about malware attacks on Mac computers. Yet, it's even worse than we thought. This is shocking news and you have to take action now.
