Attacks on the Mac are now significant enough to warrant Apple users
investing in an anti-virus product, security company Panda Security said
as it launched a new product that offers such protection.
Marketing spin to harvest the Apple economy or justified caution? Panda
points to the numbers. There are now 5,000 ‘strains’ of malware that
target the Mac and the company says it is seeing 500 new Mac-specific
samples appearing every month.
In 2009, 34 vulnerabilities were detected in Apple’s OS X, which had
risen to 175 so far for 2010, with a 20-year total of 170,000 macros
‘viruses’ affecting the platform.
To be clear, such security threats relate only to Apple desktop and
laptop computers and not iPads of iPhones, which are only vulnerable if
they have been ‘jailbroken’ or if, somehow, a rogue app breaks through
the approval process.
