Well windows users, today is the day to point your finger at your mac buddy and smile 🙂
Windows users take alot of flak for the obvious virus problems that Microsoft computers are plagued with, but today it was discovered that there is a massive Mac virus in the wild.
This particular virus has been in the wild since around February, so it just goes to show that it doesn’t take long for a virus to spread even on a Mac platform.
Mac computers are also becoming wildly popular so don’t be surprised if you see more articles like this in the future.
If you are using a Mac, there isn’t alot of options for virus software, but Mcafee, Symantec, F-Protect and others have solutions to keep you safe.
Fortunately for the users who have this virus the removal is quite simple, instructions can be found here.
For more details on the virus Dr.Web has a full publication.
