Mac Malware Threats Outpace Windows
Here’s the good news for Apple fans. The Mac is slowly, but surely growing market share. It still trails well-behind windows, but jumped almost three percent since late last year. The bad news? Success also makes the Mac a more attractive target for malware purveyors.
The anti-malware software company surveyed consumer and business customers systems running their software and found “a significant rise in the overall prevalence of Mac threats in 2019, with an increase of over 400 percent from 2018.” In 2018, Mac threat detection per endpoints was at 4.8. It jumped to 11 in 2019. Windows threat detections per endpoints was 5.8 in 2019.
