There have been a lot of people concerned about malware like Gameover, ZeuS, Cryptolocker and others recently, usually right after an outbreak of news reports.

If you’re using a Mac, you need not do anything to remain safe from these things; you are safe by nature of using a Mac. Keep an eye on this site to be alerted to new Mac malware, when it appears, and read my Mac Malware Guide to learn how to keep yourself safe.
