Macs seem to have fewer problems with viruses, ransomware, and other forms of malware. However, the new ThiefQuest ransomware seems to be very bad and also very difficult to remove. You can read more in an article by Lily Hay Newman in the Wired web site at: https://www.wired.com/story/new-mac-ransomware-thiefquest-evilquest/.
In the article, please note the statement “Though ThiefQuest is packed with menacing features, it’s unlikely to infect your Mac anytime soon unless you download pirated, unvetted software.”
It appears to not be a problem unless you start visiting web sites or or file download services that offer pirated software. You’ve been warned!
