Security specialists said Saturday that hackers are taking increasing aim at iPhones and Macintosh computers as the hot-selling Apple devices gain popularity worldwide.Hackers have historically focused devious efforts on computers using Windows operating systems because the Microsoft software has more than 90 percent of the global market, promising evil-doers a wealth of targets.
Macintosh computers have been gaining market share and catching the interest of hackers, according to Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) security vulnerability analyst Cameron Hotchkies.
“There are more eyes looking over Apple products for vulnerabilities,” Hotchkies told AFP at a notorious annual DefCon gathering of hackers in Las Vegas.
“It has slowly been growing as a target people are more and more interested in.”
