ugene Kaspersky believes Apple Mac OS X is 10 years behind Microsoft Windows in terms of security. He believes Cupertino will have to go through the security overhaul that Redmond once did.
“I think [Apple] are ten years behind Microsoft in terms of security,” Kaspersky told CBR. “For many years I’ve been saying that from a security point of view there is no big difference between Mac and Windows. It’s always been possible to develop Mac malware, but this one was a bit different. For example it was asking questions about being installed on the system and, using vulnerabilities, it was able to get to the user mode without any alarms.”
