Many people say that Mac’s are impossible to Hack but it’s easier than you think. The main problem for hackers that want to hack a Mac is that they don’t have a Mac. That means, if you don’t have a Mac, you can’t hack a Mac. But what about if you have a Mac? Well, even coding newbies can make a little mini “Virus” that disable the Finder/Terminal until you disable it. That means you could easily (with 3 lines of code) “destroy” a Mac from a person with no Computer knowledge.
“If you haphazardly visit every link and download every file sent to you in e-mail or posted to your social-networking pages, sooner or later you’re going to get nailed. Period. Platforms are passe. Apps are where it’s at.” – Robert G. Ferrell, IS security specialist, U.S. Defense Dept
Is Windows easier to hack? Yes. Windows has many perfect features for Hackers to make and disguise their Trojans and Viruses. You can change the Icon and extension. The Mac OSX also has many security features to prevent Trojans/Viruses and to protect the Computer. Windows has alerts as well but those can be clicked away easily and show up on nearly every program, so you might already click them away before realizing what you have downloaded.
Our Conclusion: It’s not impossible to hack a Mac, but easier to hack a Windows PC.
