Macs hit with malware
It used to be that Mac users would laugh in the face of their Windows counterparts, claiming their computers were more secure. Well, they shouldn't feel so safe.
Security experts are warning Apple computer users to be vigilant - and perhaps download some security software - as the Mac operating system comes under attack.
The names of the threats may sound like a program that protects users from viruses and malware - but it's quite the opposite.
The trojan horse (software that's up to no good) appears in online search results, advising Mac users to download and install software to protect themselves from threats.
If activeated, it will open up porn websites and other junk in the background - just as a security-like window pops up asking you to buy an upgrade to remove the threats.
Removing the malware is about as pleasant as a visit to the dentist - you can follow these steps here to clean your Mac from the threat.
Really, Mac users should be running some form of security software just to be on the safe side - and to avoid viruses and malware like this one.
Windows isn't perfect - they had a major release of patches just a few weeks ago. But Mac's aren't worry-free either.
Are you worried about getting viruses/malware on your computer?
