A Malwarebytes legfrissebb State of Malware jelentésében azt állítja, hogy első alkalommal történt meg, hogy a Mac-es malware-ek száma meghaladta a PC-s malware-ek számát.
“People need to understand that they’re not safe just because they’re using a Mac,” Thomas Reed, Malwarebytes’ director of Mac and mobile and contributor to the report, told Recode. [...] Windows machines still dominate the market share and tend to have more security vulnerabilities, which has for years made them the bigger and easier target for hackers. But as Apple's computers have grown in popularity, hackers appear to be focusing more of their attention on the versions of macOS that power them.Malwarebytes said there was a 400 percent increase in threats on Mac devices from 2018 to 2019, and found an average of 11 threats per Mac devices, which about twice the 5.8 average on Windows. [...] “There is a rising tide of Mac threats hitting a population that still believes that ‘Macs don’t get viruses,’” Reed said.
