“If a hacker turned their attention to the Mac, it would suffer just as much as Windows,” Ray Wagner said. “Attacking the 95 percent of the market gets them more attention.”
According to research Wagner did in the last year, an operating system would need to hit the 20 to 30 percent penetration level before it really becomes a target for hackers. This is the point where hackers will feel it is worth the time to expose a vulnerability.
That’s not so hard to understand now, is it?
