A few weeks ago my officemate posted to Facebook,
I’ve just been told by two different Mac Geniuses that installing an antivirus software could actually make the Mac computer less secure. Unfortunately, both were phone conversations because I’m almost certain they were doing the Jedi mind trick hand motions.
I thought of this today as Graham Cluley tweeted links to a couple of video blogs from last year. Unicorns have been spotted, Malware for the Mac does exist. Now to be fair these examples are largely social engineering. Just because it’s not a zero day doesn’t mean the systems isn’t owned. Fake Codecs and Fake anti-maiware aren’t the exclusive providence of Microsoft Operating Systems.
