BrandPost: macOS – A Carrier for Windows Viruses

Remember Apple’s infamous “Get a Mac” campaign? If not, you’re not alone. Things have changed a lot since Apple could use malware to capitalize on the higher vulnerability of regular PCs. Today, Mac antivirus software is not only abundant, it’s necessary!

The age-old myth that Macs are immune to malware no longer holds water for two main reasons:

1) With the rising popularity of the iPhone (iOS), the Apple ecosystem has increased tremendously, prompting cybercriminals to also set their sights on Mac users.

2)  Platform-agnostic schemes such as, fraud, spam, and phishing scams are targeting every type of device, from computers, to tablets and smartphones.

Apple Photos: What do you need to do to get People to sync?

Apple promised that when we identified people in Photos in iOS 10 or macOS 10.12 Sierra, it would sync and merge this special album’s contents across all our linked devices. Oops! Well, it finally made it into iOS 11 and High Sierra, at least.

Macworld reader Gerry was looking forward to this working, but finds that his various devices never sync up, no matter how long he takes or how much he observes the Photos’ apps instructions to wait.

However, Gerry doesn’t use iCloud Photo Library. He says, “If iCloud Photo Library is required, then nuts!” Have some pistachios, because that feature is required.
