“Several users of Apple devices in Australia have reported that their gadgets have been “hijacked” – with a message demanding money.
Experts believed the hack had targeted users by exploiting the Find my iPhone feature.”
So you think Apple products are soo safe and secure that no one will target them. Think again. The more people change over from Microsoft products to Apple products the increase in the attack vectors will also increase. The bad guys are always after the best bang for their buck, so the more users of Apple will increase the attacks.
In most acses the actual target is not the apply system, it is the applications that we use to go about our everyday use of the systems. The applications are normally the target. The applets are also prime targets – acrobat, Java and the like.
No Matter what system you are using make sure that updates are applied as soon as possible after they have been released.
