What chance to get ransomware on Sierra?

Recommended Posts

There have ever only been three pieces of ransomware ever to hit the Mac, and none of them have been particularly big threats. I could count on one hand the number of people I have encountered who were affected by any of these, and I wouldn't use all the fingers.

However, this could all change overnight. For that reason, be sure you keep your Mac well backed up. More importantly, make sure you have at least one backup that is not connected to your Mac 24-7. A backup that remains connected to your Mac all the time is vulnerable to being damaged by ransomware. One that is disconnected and put in a safe place is not.

Ultimately, the best protection you can have against ransomware is a good set of backups. If you've got that, you've got nothing to fear from ransomware except annoyance and a little lost time reinstalling from your backups.
