For years and years, Apple maintained that an antivirus program was not required and Macintosh – and for many years, if you were careful – is was *largely* true. The amount of Macintosh threats were minimal – and the cybercriminals simply didn’t go after Macintosh computers because their numbers were relatively low. As Apple’s market share increased, these cybercriminals turned their attention to Macs – because they cost more – the customer who buy them are typically well off to affluent – and because often-times, they were plain easy to infect – because they lived in a bubble where clicking on bad-links and programs simply had no ill-effects. Those days are GONE – pure history. New Macintosh threats appear on a very regular basis – and some range from fairly benign popups, to full-blown banker-trojans.
