Remember all the insurance advertisements that always run that famous punchline ’Insurance is a subject matter of solicitation, please read the document carefully before investing’. Wondering what it has got to do with Mac computers? Replace insurance with security in Macs and you will come to know why I said so. Yes, Mac computers by the virtue of being excellent piece of engineering require no or lesser security than Windows-based computers. Therefore, security remains a subject matter of solicitation for Macs and not a must-have thing.
This might have been true until recently when MacDefender, the fake antivirus program aka Mac malware, broke out in Mac machines. This must have astonished the proud Mac owners who have always thought that their machine is immune to all kinds of virus, spyware, and malware among other infections that typically target Windows computers. Though there might have been a very few instances of MacDefender’s attacks on Mac computers, it shows that these are as vulnerable to infections as the Windows computers. Now, security is a must-have thing for Mac computers also. Gone were the days when Macs used to be considered the safest computers than other OS based computers. Practice safe computing as your Mac’s security is in your hands. Kindly leave your comments to help us improve your experience.
