A new tech support scam is specifically targeting Mac users. According to the folks at Malwarebytes, users are tricked either by clicking on an attachment going to a malicious site. All Safari users need to do is visit the site and the malware will lock up their Mac. Then a warning like this comes on, directing users to call a number for assistance.
Sometimes the malware opens up iTunes and locks it down to. Of course, you aren’t calling actual Apple Tech support, instead, you’ll be making contact with scammers. And who knows what kind of damage they can do. According to the experts at Malwarebytes, if you’ve updated your Mac to macOS Sierra 10.12.2, you’re protected from the malware that locks up your mail app, but the second version of the malware seems to still be able to target iTunes.
