Yes, it’s true – anyone can become a victim of malware, even Mac users. Owners of the shiny silver computers might be reluctant to spend money on security tools, since their virus risk is lower – but now they don’t have to.
Software developer Patrick Wardle has published a collection of downloadable products to help protect Macs against malware – and they’re all available for free.
The security tools on Objective-See.com can help you uncover hidden programs installed on your computer, or search for suspicious encryption software running in the background.
One tool even alerts users when their microphone or camera has been activated, to protect them from unwanted spying. The blog also offers Wardle’s latest musings and insights. — dpa/thestar.com.my
