With strong software’s apple’s computers have been successful enough to face serious hacking attacks but, unfortunately, the game is not the same as was in past. Now, Steve Jobs and his companions are taking steps to avoid this disaster
All this mayhem started when a user was downloading a software into Mac device when a pop out window appeared, showing a message that Mac device was infected and needed to be eradicated and then asked to give the credit card number. Pop out window displayed names of different security programs, such as, MacDefender, MacProtector, or MacSecurity. Such malware softwares are designed to steal financial information of users.
The main core software of Mac is same as one used in iPhones and iPads. So, there might be chances that Apple’s mobile devices may also get infected.
According to Jaroslovsky, columnist of Bloomberg, attack on Mac device can be a sign that Apple needs to take extra steps to protect its devices. Users also must be extra careful while downloading software from untrusted sites on internet.
I am sure that Apple’s technicians would be looking into affairs to thwart the malware threat. Meanwhile Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs would be announcing new features like iOS 5(Lion), iCloud and Automatic Download feature during Worldwide Developers Conference.
