Detections per endpoint increased from 4.8 in 2018 to 11.0, compared to the 5.8 measured on Windows systems in 2019. The report explains that these PUPs are deemed unwanted not only by Malwarebytes itself, but its community of macOS users.

Malwarebytes reported that consumer threats declined by 2 percent, while business detections increased by almost 1 million, or 13 percent, YoY. Combine those two segments and the total number of threats increased by 1% this year. And while Trojans and other more serious forms of malware dominate the PC landscape, adware attacks are the fastest growing malware attack in both the PC and Mac sectors.
