“The amount of malware on Macs ‘no longer acceptable”

Apple found and removed 130 types of malware in 2020 alone, 2021 will be far more.

Apple’s head of software has said that there is now an unacceptable amount of malware targeting the Mac operating system, with the situation now far worse than that on iOS said Craig Federighi, senior VP of Apple software engineering. Federighi claimed that Apple found and removed around 130 different kinds of malware on the Mac last year which had infected hundreds of thousands of systems. In comparison, he suggested that there were just three kinds of malware found to have infected iPhones in 2020. He also revealed that members of his own family had discovered malware on their Macs, but stressed that it could still be “operated safely”.
