Well it looks like Pandoras Box can be opened! Nothing is sacred anymore!

Malware that holds you to ransom has successfully targeted Macs for the first time.

KeRangers Malware was hidden in a version of a BitTorrent Client Called Transmission – which has since had its developers’ certificate revoked. Which means infected software if downloaded prevents it from being installed if people downloaded it.

Mac’s have historically been locked down and since it is so secure been incredibly hard for hackers to write Malware code for it – and historically not many people had macs so weren’t targeted – but as macs get more popular that will soon change according to Greg Day, Palo Alto Networks’ chief security officer for Europe, the Middle East and Africa

So dont go downloading Walking Dead off of Bit Torrent, stream or buy that like everyone else!
