Weekly Mac Security and Tech News Roundup: 4/26/13

Posted on April 26th, 2013 by

We’re on the cusp of May! Hard to believe that spring is on our doorsteps and summer will be fast approaching. Hopefully you’ll be enjoying some sunshine and warmer weather this weekend, but if not, cuddle up to a warm fire with a hot drink of your choice and enjoy this week’s batch of links.

Remember to be smart, keep your virus definitions updated, and don’t click on any suspicious links.
