Mac malware woes not over yet. New Superbug released.

My Mac friends *used* to boast that their Macs never got viruses to which I used to smugly respond, “That’s because there’s so few Macs, no one cares”. But it’s different now as Macs are the new hip cool in thing. Along with popularity comes virus targeting and I assure you this is just the beginning. Welcome to the world of popular computing platforms Mac peeps!

Yesterday, 25 days after the Mac Defender malware began to appear in the wild, Apple finally responded. In a technical support note, “How to avoid or remove Mac Defender malware,” the company posted instructions for users to follow if they’ve encountered this malware specimen in the wild. It also promised a security update to remove infections automatically.

File that memo under, “Too little, too late.”
