The most recent variant of the Mac Defender malware for Mac computers has surfaced and is actively spreading. Malware is commonly accepted in the Windows world but the reason this is even a story is because Mac computers are heralded as “immune” to viruses and spyware.

Windows has always been a target for malware mainly because it was easier and the marketshare was there to be had. This is just proof that all computers are succeptable to viruses and other forms of malware.
