Apple Becoming a Target :-Mac Defender Malware
The first sign of concern came one year ago when Mac Defender, malicious software, targeted Mac. This was just a start. It was even very primitive software.
It used to infect a user through Google Image search. Even though, quite surprisingly, it successfully infected thousands of Mac computers. Apple had to come forward to release a security update to block this malware from iOS platform.
The problem for Apple didn’t stop there as hackers tweaked the code to break the defense of Apple security update. A sort of cat and mouse game started that created lots of problems for Apple and hurting its security status. Even Apple couldn’t end the problem.
Mac Defender was killed by Google when it decided to not display any image through Google image searches that is infected with any malware.
