The deadly Flashback malware recently shook up the entire world by claiming more than 600,000 Macs worldwide. Although the malware is now somewhat in control, but it was a real shocker for all those Mac users who used to boast about the impermeability of their PCs.
But the new findings made by the antivirus firm Sophos have given a twist to the whole story. According to Sophos, a Mac computer is more likely to be infected by a malware that has the capability to affect a Windows computer too.
Sophos analyzed the data of about 100,000 Mac computers installed with its antivirus software. The firm found that out of five, one Mac was infected with a Windows malware, whereas the ratio of finding Mac malware was one to 36.
So, if you are a Windows user and are fearlessly transferring data from any Mac computer then you may be putting yourself in great trouble.
