While Mac users typically don’t have to worry about viruses, there have been a number of recent trojans affecting the platform, such as this recent trojan disguising itself as the Adobe Flash Player installer.
Considering that Macs are becoming more and more popular, they’re also becoming a bigger target for various malware, hacks, and cyber scams.
Add to all that the fact that Macs are still affected by such nasties as spyware, tracking cookies, and other bad bits that are out to nab your data, and the growing threat to Macs doen’t seem quite so insignificant.
So, what can be done?
Fortunately, most of these problems can be avoided by practicing safe internet use, and by regularly clearing your browser cache and stored cookies.
