https://imgur.com/4haLu3x , keep having to delete these trojans and viruses...
Have you run malwarebytes over it? What is that saying?
i got kaspersky. I'll do it tomorrow. get malwarebytes and run it. so frustrating atm. never use a torrent download untill.... this week i guess.
deleted some adware via malwarebytes and ... now kaspersky.... has detected some ..trojans.. but nothing from malwb.
Ok so you've cleaned it now? Still coming back?
malwarebytes saids it 0 results for malware, whereas kaspersky detects trojans which can't be deleted via it options.
try running this (one time scan)
what is a good anti virus to pay for? I've had vipre, kaspersky atm.
We use AVG (the paid one) at work which seems to be good and nowhere near as resource-hungry as it's free counterpart. Eset used to be the top of the pops but is now only available as a paid seervice I think. Using Avira free on the dauhter's school laptop and it runs well, although the occasional pop-up asking you to spend money is an annoyance at worst.
In the past I used Avast (free), seemed an excellent free solution.
Also, run a full CC cleaner scan/clean... sometimes it can help removing certain files and cleaning up the registry.
Then give this a whirl too after;
Can Kaspersky quarantine it instead of deletion? Looks like maybe a rootkit...
hmm possibly.. do you often go to warez sites or torrent sites etc and download heaps?
or do you often go to hardcore extreme p0rn or h3ntai sites?
You need to be honest and tell us the truth cos it'll def come back even if u delete virus.
Avast is now considered spyware.
suggest you try nod32
^can't use it for mac. eset.com. I've just tired trend and it found nothing. though kaspersky keep saying it found a trojan but there no option to delete or anything
didn’t realise it was Mac. Use Sophos for a Mac https://home.sophos.com/download-mac-anti-virus
or pay and get https://www.eset.com/us/home/cyber-security-pro
and run some add ons in your web browsers to block malicious sites as well
Yes they have admitted selling data, a small portion of their revenue. They have apparently cleaned up their act and the data they on-sell is now not indivdualised. Google is farming your data. Facebook is farming your data. Every browser extension is farming your data.
for Mac i would suggest using ClamXAV - you get a free 30 day trial
It has been around for mac for about 15 years at least
also Malwarebytes for Mac is good
whatever you do stay away from mackeeper or maccleaner etc
also according to the pic you posted your browser (safari) is being infected, not your files
I would suggest resetting safari and deleting your plist files related to safari and then restart and resetup safari
Malwarebytes should fix most of it and clamxav will kill most dodgy extensions but some may remain hence why i suggest deleting the plist file for safari
See how you go - kaspersky is great on pc, but not so great on mac.
make sure you empty your recycle bin after deleting and reboot
if de_overfiend's advice doesn't help you could try this, it might be a media player you installed to view/play certain media files that keeps adding the extension to your browser.
Also kaspersky might being giving you a false positive, if other malware programs don't pick it up. Other option is back up files and restore mac to factory.
