Tony raised our understanding of Malware and the ways in which Apple helps defend us from it. His talk focused on macOS but most points are also applicable to iOS. He excluded eMail and Social Media from his talk as these have been covered by others and the vulnerabilities are user-enabled.
Malware, short for Malicious Software, includes viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, adware and ‘bots’. All are program code, designed to… Read more…

A hardy 7 members braved February for a dose of nostalgic recycling. John Ansell presented the means of moving your vinyl records into iTunes so that you can listen to them again without all that cleaning, turning over halfway through and unwanted clicks and pops.
