Visualizing OS X Threats


A small visual map of OS X threat distribution. They are often found in websites offering Free Software, Cracks and Keygens. Also, victimizing Mac users looking for drivers and books… this may equate an impression that “Free Mac Stuff” = “Mac Threats” – yes, attackers mostly rides on popular trend or search.

This is just part of the big map, but basically in my investigation these threats are massively distributed in different servers and geographic locations. Obviously, it provides us understanding that these threats are mostly driven by pay-per-intall schemes.
