Mac users must look for ‘phone home’ malware

Opt-in to Cyber Safety. Multiple layers of protection for your devices, online privacy and more.

I have been a fan of Apple computers for well over a decade. I have my own Macbook Air and have used Macbook Pros in a prior job for years.

I truly believe that there is not a better personal computer than an Apple.

While they are expensive, they are very high quality. One of the things I like about Apple is they’re more secure than a Windows computer. There are fewer worries about viruses or malware.

Although Apple computers are safer, they aren’t immune to viruses or malware. Researchers at security firm Red Canary recently discovered malware that has gone un-noticed on roughly 30,000 Apple computers across the planet.

While there are many millions of Apple computers out there, 30,000 infections is something to notice.
