Apple releasing OS update to combat malware

Just like in the PC world, malware attempting to get payments for non-infected systems has penetrated the MAC OS.

A rampant problem in PC’s, malware claims that your system is infected and, for a modest price, can remove the infections.  Of course these are just scams to get you to send $ 29.95 or some amount and then do nothing except possibly disrupting the computer even more.

Apple has had much fewer instances of such malware, primarily because they have a much smaller market share than PC’s and are a less interesting target to hackers.
