Stuart Sumner for Computing:
Apple has invited security company Kaspersky Lab to advise it on the security of its Mac OS – according to the security provider’s chief technology officer. Speaking exclusively to Computing, Kaspersky CTO Nikolai Grebennikov said his firm had recently begun the process of analysing the Mac OS platform at Apple’s request.
Kapersky made headlines recently for claiming that one in five Macs was hit with malware – stretching the truth, perhaps, since that number included Macs that have received malware spam, which doesn’t direct affect the Mac operating system.
UPDATE: Turns out that like the previous story, Kaspersky was full of shit when it said that Apple requested its help.
