Malware is about numbers, but sometimes the numbers are wrong. Jack Miller explains how Mac malware grows in number.
Malware is defined as any kind of software which does what you don’t want it to do on your Mac, so Google’s snooping around with the Chrome browser and Google search could be considered malware. Amazon tracking and all those advertisements for what you searched for yesterday might be considered malware.
To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi, these are not the malware you are looking for.
Security experts who track such things say Mac malware is on the increase and grew 270-percent just last year. That math supports three pieces of malware that became eight, but you get the idea.
No numbers. Just a percentage in growth.
