Mac-OS Ransomware Protection: Prevention and Detection Mechanisms
Ioana BRĂNESCU, Emil SIMION
As we are living in the era of information, the security of computer systems is gaining more and more attention. An attacker needs only one vulnerability, which, once exploited, can have a devastating effect on the targeted system. There are various reasons behind such attacks, but one of the most frequent motivations is the financial one, a well-known example of such an attack being the one which uses ransomware malware. This article analyses different methods of protection against ransomware malware on Mac-OS devices and studies the mechanism which made past ransomware attacks successful.
