So Much for Mac Is More Secure than Windows: macOS Malware Increased by 270%
macOS is generally referred to as a more secure alternative to Windows 10 because, as some people say, Apple’s operating system can’t be infected by viruses.
This isn’t only completely false, but simply comparing Windows and macOS in terms of security these days no longer makes so much sense, as both platforms are being attacked by a growing number of malware.
In the case of Apple’s desktop operating system, malware threats increased by no less than 270% last year, according to an analysis from Malwarebytes, and a total of four different major vulnerabilities were discovered only in the first months of this year. In other words, there’s a chance macOS malware’s growth continues throughout 2018, and users need to pay more attention to their cyber-security.
