It’s generally assumed that Macs don’t get viruses – but this is really only partly true. While yes, Macs tend to get viruses much less than PCs, but every year about a half-million Macs do get infected with some sort of malware, be it a virus, Trojan, or various other piece of malicious software. With Sacramento being the hub of commerce and electronics users that it is, many of these infected computers pop up in the city of Sacramento every year.
The reason that Macs have enjoyed relative shelter from viruses and subsequently not needed protection software is because for many years, they have had a much smaller market share than Windows. Hackers often seek to gain money from their misdeeds, and since Macs require completely different code, it’s not worth it for them to grab anything from the low-hanging fruit. And apples don’t hang as low as other fruit on the computer tree. The number of computer users is rising, and with it the number of Mac users. This means that hackers will be more prone to write malware for your Mac.
