It remains unclear how this Bitcoin ransomware was spread through the Transmission download page, although the platform may have been breached by hackers. Keeping in mind how this malware will only activate after a three-day waiting period, Mac OS X users might want to perform some additional security checks on their machine.

this proves that there is no OS that is 100% secure. every electronic device might get hacked and everyone should care for what he download or browse online
BTW, It is my first time to hear about this type of viruses before now
