Mac users worried about what could be the first full-fledged ransomware attack on Apple‘s desktop operating system can take certain steps to protect themselves.

First off, users should avoid downloading Transmission BitTorrent version 2.90, the file-sharing software that delivered the ransomware — a form of malware that encrypts certain files and data until users submit a bitcoin payment.

Mac users can also make sure Apple’s own malware protection feature, XProtect, is enabled. That feature blocks known malicious software from being installed on the tech giant’s computers.
