OS-X Mac users have been urged to install a proper virus scanner, after a new and somewhat dangerous variant called Flashback.C was discovered.
And so it begins... :((
Like anything, once it starts to become popular, people will try to break it. No one wants to claim fame in hacking or damaging an unpopular product. Now that Apple is making some market share headway, they're appearing on the radars now as a new target. I hope Apple takes things more seriously now.
apocalypse now :D
I think it is finally time for me to switch over to Linux.
Yeah, as Racer-X said, that'll happen to any tech that becomes popular. Apple has lots of funny exploits built into them too lol.
Thats not that serious, all you have to do, is realize that your not downloading the real flash. I wish apple would take security seriously though...
Yeaaaaaa... and yet it still happens
link not working?
Apple really need to wake up to the real world and see that as a OS starts getting bigger people try to bring it down just like Windows. I have never once had a virus on my windows pc because I watch what im doing on the net but 80% of people who use a pc on the net dont and thats why they get a virus and have problems but I am glad in away this is starting to happen to Apple now as it shows them that just because someone has a mac dose not mean they wont get a virus.
lol to think right now there are still idiots who believe that macs are un hackable, virus free and the best things for any type of music/audio editing...
