Reviews:

All the series about “Who was” books are always very popular. It can let us know a lot of the people and story behind him. Children can get better understanding and realizing about a character and a period of history. In addition, simple words and rich illustrations in this book let my child stare to Steve Jobs’ life. You should know he barely has interest with any history or biographies. Steve’s story is an inspiration for everyone, I believe children will learn more or less from this book.

Put Indestructible Armour on Your iOS Devices with Anti-Virus Apps

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. Computer security company Kaspersky said publicly that Apple is ten years behind Microsoft at least in terms of security.

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.

Nip in the bud! iOS users should deal with issues before they happen. Prepare in advance with Anti-Virus Software for iOS Devices. Kaspersky released a Flashfake Removal Tool last month but had been temporarily suspended since a bug in the software was discovered. Before the updated version come out, users who have no shield on your iOS devices should install them immediately to prevent infection from spreading. Below we will list some great Anti-Virus Software for you to avoid iOS devices being affected by virus.

Top 1: VirusBarrier

Top 2: Sophos Security Threat Monitor

Top 3: McAfee Global Threat Intelligence Mobile

Top 4: VirusRemover

(Above 4 are all from Apple Store)

Top 5: ISafeGuard

Tips: Here are top 3 Anti-Virus Software for Mac are ready for Mac users to struggle with the virus, adware, malware, etc.
