Thanks superssjdan for sharing the article with us 😉
 
We can draw the two conclusions from this article. The first is that passwords should be as much stronger as possible and the second is that Load remote images automatically should be disabled in email clients. I see these security measures generally valid regardless on OS. Therefore I don't think just Apple users should be wary :D

I know all users should be wary,but i called out Apple users as they are the most non-chalant about security.Most Apple nuts i come across have this"it will never happen to me because i use apple attitude".I have seen macs nuked many times over the last few years.
