Security experts warn that Apple will be targeted by hackers in 2011

December 30, 2010

Security firm McAfee has released their 2011 list of systems likely to be targeted by hackers in the coming year.  Apple and their associated products such as iPhone, iPad and systems running Mac OS X are top on the list.

According to McAfee:

Historically, the Mac OS platform has remained relatively unscathed by malicious attackers, but McAfee Labs warns that Mac-targeted malware will continue to increase in sophistication in 2011. The popularity of iPads and iPhones in business environments, combined with the lack of user understanding of proper security for these devices, will increase the risk for data and identity exposure, and will make Apple botnets and Trojans a common occurrence.
