Are Macs vulnerable to malware?

It’s an urban myth that Macs don’t need antivirus and are immune to malware.

It’s simply not true! Here are some examples: ThiefQuest, Crossrider, OSX\MaMi, X- agent, Fruitfly, Gotofail error, safari-get, KeRanger, Mackeeper, FLashback,

It used to be the case that due to Mac’s low market share the bad guys didn’t make Mac malware. But with Mac’s increasing popularity, the bad guys are in full attack.

Mac specific malware is on the loose stealing credit card and bank details. And also encrypting and holding Mac owners to ransom. It is infecting Mac’s by hiding in software that is designed to look like a “google software update”.
