Macworld Do Macs get viruses? Do Macs need antivirus software? The answers to these questions aren’t as simple as they might seem. In this article, we look at the dangers faced by Mac users, and the pros and cons of using Mac antivirus software. Historically, the Mac has been considered safe and secure for a number of reasons that we will go into below, but in recent years the consensus has fluctuated. In its 2020 State of Malware report, Malwarebytes said it saw “a significant rise in the overall prevalence of Mac threats in 2019, with an increase of over 400 percent from 2018.” The following year, the company found that overall malware detected on macOS decreased by 38 percent…

Macworld While the higher-end MacBooks with M1 Pro and M2 Pro and M1 Max and M2 Max chips support multiple external displays, Apple’s lower-end range of MacBooks that use a standard M1 or M2 processor cannot natively connect more than one external monitor. This is a massive limitation compared to the previous Intel-based generation of Mac laptops that could run two displays when connected to a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 docking station or hub that we hope will be rectified with the M3. Here are the external display specs for Apple’s current laptops: M1 MacBook Air: Maximum one external display M2 MacBook Air: Maximum one external display M2 MacBook Pro: Maximum one external display M2 Pro MacBook Pro: Maximum two…
Macworld Microsoft has released details on a security vulnerability that the company discovered in macOS Ventura. The vulnerability, which Microsoft dubbed “Migraine,” involved Apple’s Migration Assistant and allows a hacker to get by macOS’s System Integrity Protection and get access to the data on the Mac. In a blog post, Microsoft provides the technical details on how Migraine works. Apple’s SIP provides security for macOS to stop unauthorized root access, but the Migration Assistant app has a privilege that allows it to have unrestricted root access. Microsoft created a modified version of Migration Assistant that takes advantage of this exploit, but the modified app had to be used while the Mac’s Setup Assistant is in debug mode. Microsoft’s researchers were…
Former “Deadwood” actor Brent Sexton is suing Apple Studios, alleging the company rescinded an offer to have him star in a new series because he declined to take the coronavirus vaccine due to medical reasons, costing him nearly $600,000. Apple Park in Cupertino, California : Sexton’s Los Angeles Superior Court disability discrimination suit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. Apple corporate and retail store employees were not required to be vaccinated against the coronavirus if they underwent required testing, but Apple Studios “trampled the rights” of those who worked for the Los Angeles- based subsidiary that produces content for Apple’s new streaming service, Apple TV+, the suit states. Anyone who worked on an Apple TV+ production was required to get…
Macworld Web security is a matter to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, while most VPNs protect you, they also sacrifice performance, making it difficult to do things like stream content. Wish you could enjoy the best of both worlds? Then it’s time to check out Getflix — And particularly this Memorial Day since you can save over $100 off the cost of a lifetime subscription. Getflix, unlike most conventional VPNs, uses DNS technology to reroute only certain types of data to overseas servers while allowing popular streaming services to pass through. What that means is that you’ll be able to stream from sources like Netflix and Hulu unimpeded, but you’ll still be protected from hackers so your anonymity and web traffic…
