because the malware authors have realized that Mac fanbois have more money and less exposure to their tricks simply because those users aren't used to them
yap. apple fanboys are a quite homogenous audience. so it makes complete sense to choose them as target group..
The real reason people around me switched to Apple was the safety from viruses.
..plus they seem to be a bit naive and not resistant against malware and viruses because of lack of contact. that could compromise much more systems relatively to the pc world.
Obviously the intent of an exploit is to infect as many machines as possible so it only makes sense that you would target the largest group.
no more. think about the possibilities and the bigger fallout percentage.
