    I haven't updated in quite some time. I only reload the page is there's something worthwhile to view. I suppose I'm at risk and should update? does anyone have any advice?

    First OS X ransomware actually a scrambled Linux file scrambler
    Gatekeeper nutmegged using dodgy cert
    9 Mar 2016 at 21:11, John Leyden
    The world's first fully functional OS X ransomware, KeRanger, is really a Mac version of the Linux Encoder Trojan, according to new research from Romanian security software firm Bitdefender.

    The infected OS X torrent update carrying KeRanger looks virtually identical to version 4 of the Linux Encoder Trojan that has already infected thousands of Linux servers this year.

    KeRanger spread via an infected version of an otherwise legitimate open source BitTorrent application, Transmission. The tainted version (2.90) was available for download between March 4 and March 5, 2016 and came signed with a legitimate developer certificate.




    Its only a matter of time.... you're arrogance will yours and Apples downfall.....

    The only people who still run Flash are Windows dorks and very old Windows dorks who don't know how to use computers.

    Apple disabled that lame shit a long time ago. You can still turn it on, but you have to install it first.
