[Solved] Mac vs. Windows Malware
I would normally write this kind of question directly to Dave, but in the spirit of embracing the forums I’ll do it here.
In a recent MGG, @Dave Hamilton was talking about things he learned at MacTech. He said, “Macs are now more vulnerable to malware than Windows. Let that sink in.” I expected his next sentence to be some sort of supporting information for this statement, but it didn’t come.
I know that Microsoft has mad vast strides in protecting Windows from malware, At the same time, Apple has continued to progress in protecting our Macs with Xprotect and the T2 chip and the Secure Enclave. I’ve not heard or read anything to suggest that Apple has slipped behind.
So @Dave Hamilton - can you give us some supporting documentation for your statement?
Still watching, some more info on his opinion. around 18 minutes in, he has a chart that says "Macs are just as susceptible to vulnerabilities as their (modern) Windows counterparts ... if not more so!"
Ok, sounds like the same statement. But he goes on to present the well-known fact that there are more CVEs for the Mac than there are for Windows. He also says that Mac vulnerabilities are cheaper than Windows vulnerabilities. He thinks this means that the Mac ones are easier to find.
