And you don’t want to write it all down on a piece of paper, because what if that paper found its way into someone else’s hands? There’s a solution.
Yes, it can be a hard thing to admit. Nobody wants to speak up about it. For everyone’s sake, though, someone has to break the social taboo and just come out and say it—Macs are not impervious to malware. As secure as Macs generally are, the fact is that hackers are targeting them more than ever.
