Yep, Apple malware does exist. Apple knows it, but says nothing.

Filed under: News — admin @ 10:18 am

So much for the claim that Apple’s are “virus-free.” How well do you think that marketing slogan will play into social engineering for Mac owners?

Had It With the Hackers

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am
