Apple Guide In Securing Mac OS X

Apple has released a comprehensive security configuration guide for users of Mac OS X v10.5 and later. [Download here]

The document is in PDF format and it contains more than 200 pages of detailed instructions and recommendations for Mac OS X "advance" users.

While most Mac users are complacent in securing their computer against online or digital threats, this intensive document under Advance Security Management advises Mac OS X users to install Antivirus Tools and Intrusion Detection Systems.

Definitely, Apple acknowledges the importance of hardening computers and in today's prevalent threats such as Zlob's DNSChanger for Mac, it is no doubt that these internet security tools will certainly help users in keeping their computer safe.

This is Methusela Cebrian Ferrer and I'm now signing off.

Stay Safe Online!
