This is going to scare the hell out of Mac users who thought they were soooo safe.
It was only a matter of time.
Just wait till it hits Linux. (insert evil laugh here).
Since it really did not state it or I am really going blind...Is it all IOS's (mobile devices) or just the Computer system them selves.
I gave up years ago talking to MAC users as they thought they were so superior. Superior in price is about all. I'm sure MAC users are still in denial and always will be.
My next door neighbour uses a Mac for their home business.
He is always telling me to smarten up and buy a Mac.
"You won't get hacked if you buy a Mac."
Who is laughing now.
Mac users are so smug.
Good question! I use a iPad and phone, but I'm not a Mac user..... But like to know is it mobile devices as well.....?
Agreed they are a special breed smug and aloof though they almost have a reason guys. They skated for years without fear of infection
and their systems are rock solid. The only real disadvantage is fewer more expensive software programs and hardware is all.
Yes I use an iPhone also and you could nt give me an Android either!
The only reason MAC PC's have been left alone from virus writers is there wasn't enough of them on the market back then to waste their time. Hit Windows as they owned the market hence their virus's would impact a lot more users. It was never because MAC's couldn't get a virus as they easily could and now we're seeing that.
Of course quite true kind of shoots the Hell out of "there is safety in numbers" now doesn't it!
Well, doesn't look like a bit hit at this point. One site that I, a member of a Mac User group, never heard of got infected. Still nothing like what happens to Windows machines. But Mac users do need to take some precautions to backup files and protect their machines. I had a Mac in here this week that was hit with a Safari browser malware that said their computer was infected and to call a phone number to fix it. Couldn't get out of it. It kept redirecting the user. Got it fixed.
Here is a link that was posted on one of the other boards/forums I belong to.
