 After years of enjoying some of the most secure machines online, lately the vaunted Mac has gotten some worms in its core.  Everyone from CBS correspondent Sharyl Attkisson to 17,000 Macs that were recently infected with botnets were reported on media sources. To make matters worse, on October 21, Apple posted a security warning for users of its iCloud online storage service amid reports of a concerted effort to steal passwords and other data from people who use the popular service in China.  Even a trio of Google security engineers chimed in by revealong how a design flaw in SSL (Secure Socket Layer) 3.0 could be exploited by criminals. Those hackers could use POODLE to steal browser session cookies, then use the cookies to impersonate victims at websites where they make online purchases, receive email or store files in cloud services.  So if you are a mac user, you need to tune into this episode of Working the Web to Win before you come down with a Big Mac Attack.
