New Mac Ransomware-wiper-spyware ThiefQuest discovered – Intego Mac Podcast Episode 142

Posted on July 3rd, 2020 by

New malware targeting the Mac was discovered this week; it’s a hybrid ransomware-wiper-spyware, but you don’t need to worry if you don’t download pirated software. We also discuss how a journalist’s iPhone was hacked by him visiting a website, look at issues with the TikTok app on iOS, and look at how Google is now auto-deleting new user history after 18 months.
