Last month, almost 700,000 Apple’s Mac OS X computers were infected with the Flashfake/Flashback malware. Although Apple released the corresponding patch to help Mac users to solve the problem, there are still around 140,000 Macs haven’t got out of stuck.

We know Apple had already invited Kaspersky to evaluate the security and vulnerability of the Mac OS X. Today, Kaspersky’s CTO Nikolay Grebennikov indicates that “Mac OS is really vulnerable.” According to Kaspersky Lab, this is the largest Mac-based infection to this day, with the largest number of victims targeting developed countries – 700,000 infected computers around the world, with more than 98% of the computers most likely running Mac OS X.

Grebennikov said, after a short observation and understanding, he found Apple didn’t pay enough attention to the security of Mac OS X. This was because Apple refused to use patches from Oracle who released relevant patch as early as three months ago and turned to create its own patches to close Java vulnerabilities. Apple’s operation on patching on Java is quite slow, some repair work is even two or three months later than the Oracle officially release of the patch, this is too long. Apple’s slow response to Flashfake Trojan is the main cause of mass infection on Mac OS X worldwide.

In addition, Grebennikov also revealed that iOS system is relatively safe and there is no specific malware can be determined by now. Nonetheless, it can be predicted that in the near future, there will be a lot of malware will invade iOS terminal. Kaspersky believes that perhaps in a year or so, the first malware will aim at iOS devices.
