No operating system is completely immune to cyberthreats. For many years, Mac OS X devices enjoyed a solid reputation for their security. However, as their popularity grew, they have attracted more and more attention from malware developers, debunking the myth that Macs are impervious to viruses.

What are the main threats to Mac users?

The macOS operating system is vulnerable to some threats, including:

Malware and viruses

Although macOS is less vulnerable to viruses and malware than Windows, it is not free from them. Mac users can fall victim to malicious programs such as, Trojans, adware and spyware, especially if they download software from untrusted sources.

Phishing

Phishing attacks are common on all platforms and can trick Mac users into revealing personal information and login credentials on seemingly legitimate yet fake websites.

Ransomware

Although ransomware attacks on Macs are less frequent than on Windows devices, they also occur. Ransomware encrypts users’ files and demands a ransom to unlock them.

Adware

Adware is a type of unwanted software that displays intrusive advertisements and tracks users’ online activities. Mac users can be affected by adware programs that install alongside free software

Insecure software

Downloading apps from untrusted sources or installing pirated software (jailbreak) can expose Mac users to security threats. It is very important that you download apps only from the App Store or from trusted sources.

Insecure Wi-Fi networks

Connecting to insecure public Wi-Fi networks can expose user information to potential man-in-the-middle attacks where attackers can intercept communications.

Lack of security updates

Not keeping your macOS operating system and your apps up to date with the latest security fixes can leave you vulnerable to known exploits.

Weak or reused passwords

Using weak passwords or reusing the same passwords for multiple services makes it easier for attackers to access online accounts and compromise security. Panda Security enables you to create secure passwords for free: Access our free password generator!

Third-party software security flaws

Attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in third-party software such as web browsers or plug-ins to compromise the security of Mac devices.

This is the anti-malware protection itself, commonly known as antivirus. This protection scans the computer, detecting and disinfecting found malware.

Additionally, it enables you to run on-demand scans of your computer:

  • Scan of critical areas: Scans areas of your computer where malware is typically found.
  • Full scan: Scans the entire computer.
  • Custom scan: Enables you to select the folders and areas you want to scan.

You can also schedule scans so they run periodically (daily, weekly, monthly).

This feature is included in all Panda Dome plans: Panda Dome Essential, Panda Dome Advanced, Panda Dome Complete and Panda Dome Premium
