Mac Gets Hit with Malware Threat

Naked Security from Sophos has reported that Macs are getting infected with malware by visiting a Dalai Lama site. If infected, all your keystrokes could be recorded, thereby exposing all your important data such as bank passwords. Two things I’d recommend. First is an anti-virus for your Mac, such as the free one published by Sophos. Second, is to add double authentication to as many accounts as support it. For example, users of Google’s Double Auth system can NOT have their accounts hacked by a simple keyword logger, because it takes more than a single password to enter any of your Google accounts. For more on double authentication, read this.
