Palo Alto Networks said it detected that the Transmission BitTorrent installer for OS X was infected with ransomware on 4 March.

“The only previous ransomware for OS X we are aware of is FileCoder, discovered by Kaspersky Lab in 2014,” the company said,

“As FileCoder was incomplete at the time of its discovery, we believe KeRanger is the first fully-functional ransomware seen on the OS X platform.”

:rolleyes:

lmao so OS X gets a new targeted malware and everyone goes apeship, meanwhile Winblows has had countless (literally countless) variations of cryptoware and other malware for as long as it's been around.

I always found it strange that Apple made fun of PC's for not being 'fun' enough, and yet gaming on a Mac is total crap.
