Last week, Bit9 + Carbon Black released a paper stating that five times more malware for OS X has appeared in 2015 than during the previous five years combined.
Their findings are interesting, but are not well understood by many Mac users. Some have reacted with disbelief, others with great fear for this dangerous new future.
It turns out that the findings are completely true, but depend entirely on your definition of the word “malware.”
