Panda Security has released its newest anti-virus developed specifically to defend Apple product Mac OS including the iPod, iPhone and iPad.
Most Mac customers take security too lightly. The fact is, most are quite proud to the fact that they do not run any security at all. As Mac and Apple products usage increases and becomes more common, the risk of viruses raises with it. We’re nearing a tipping point, in which it’ll eventually become financially viable for hacker to focus on their efforts at Mac platform users. Mac isn’t any tougher to break into than the usual Windows PC, the days when you can actually assume that Apple’s products are exempt from harm are gone.
Panda Labs said it has documented about 5,000 strains of malware created particularly to target Apple computers, with around 500 fresh samples each month. This is a small fraction from the 55,000 new threats that reach Panda Labs every day.
