Check if your Mac is not infected with Crypto Mining malware

There is sometimes a common urban myth mentioned around the office water cooler. The myth is that Macs don’t get infected by viruses. This myth was partly spread by an Apple advertising campaign which featured in 2009 which formed part of the “Get a Mac” campaign. One of the key selling points of this campaign was that Macs didn’t suffer from the “thousands” of viruses, or more commonly referred to today as malware, which plagued Microsoft computers. Over time it was proven that Macs are not exposed to the multitude of malware strains which target Windows systems. The reasons for this are the following:

  • Small market share. There is some truth to the “security through obscurity” argument. Many virus writers are motivated by the power they can command, and the money they can make, by seizing control of large numbers of computers. That puts a financial premium on Windows malware as globally there are far more Windows computers than those running Mac OS.
  • Mac Operating Systems, with its Unix-based file system and kernel, is harder to infect with a self-replicating program.  Windows, as I understand it, allows users to write run executable code outside their own protected memory space; Mac OS X does not.
