Many people believe that they are much less likely to become infected with malware if they use a Mac computer, but is it really true? Unfortunately, No.


The research team at McAfee Labs, malware attacks on Apple's Mac computers were up 744% in 2016, and its researchers have discovered over 450,000 Mac malware samples.







Recently, the Malware Research team at CheckPoint discovered a new piece of undetectable Mac malware, which according to CheckPoint, affects all versions of Mac OS X and is "signed with a valid developer certificate (authenticated by Apple).

Shortly after MalwareBytes confirmed in a blog post that Apple had revoked the certificate.

How can I protect my Mac?


Free anti-virus does not offer enough protection these days as virus definitions are not patched soon enough. We recommend ESET for best protection on your Mac.



MalwareBytes has confirmed this in its blog post, which reads: "Apple has already revoked the certificate used to sign the app, so, at this point, anyone who encounters this malware will be unable to open the app and unable to be infected by it."
Many people believe that they are much less likely to be bothered by malware if they use a Mac computer, but is it really true? Unfortunately, No.
