Macs, Facts and Fallacies

If you’ve followed my Mac-related writing over the past couple of decades – how are you both? – you’ll know that a lot of that writing has been about mistaken claims that Macs offer more security than they really do. A view that has earned me more abuse (from the fanboi faction, at any rate) than admiration, but nearly 30 years spent in and around  the anti-malware industry have helped me grow a pretty thick skin.

All that aside, it’s quite nice to see someone else expressing similar views occasionally: in this case, Thomas Reed, who has been writing interesting and useful articles on Mac security for a long time, recently on behalf of Malwarebytes. I have to agree with Forbes that his article Mac Security Facts and Fallacies is a “useful and informative blog post that provides a balanced view of the strengths and weaknesses of security on the Mac.”
