New malware targets your Mac through email

One of the reasons why most of the people I know opt for a Mac laptop is that they think it’s relatively safer from malwares and viruses than a Windows device. Well it’s starting NOT to be the case, especially in the past couple of years. According to Checkpoint’s blog, a new type of malware that compromises and hacks into any form of communication that you do with your Mac was found by their researchers. For now, the malware was found mainly among European users.

The malware is typically spread through emails and phishing scams. So before you click emails or any suspicious websites, be careful, the Mac OS is starting to get less and less secure nowadays.
