Mac malware saw a huge rise in 2020

It’s been a busy 2020 for hackers, as a new report shows a record-breaking number of malware samples for Apple’s desktop OS, as well as Microsoft’s Windows. 

In a recent report, Atlas VPN claims that were more Mac OS malware samples in 2020 than the previous eight years combined. Since 2012, when it first started tracking malware for Apple’s OS, until 2019, it found a total of 219,257 samples.
