Remove Crowd Exclusive 1.0 app virus from Mac

Mac adware has seen a huge spike in early 2020 and the trend keeps making itself felt. Whilst there are numerous active families of these threats, one of them is literally swarming into the wild with spinoffs that are replicas of one another, for the most part. CrowdExclusive is an app that represents this syndicate. It displays annoying ads on websites and may redirect the browser to a fake search engine or junk services, making the victim stuck in unwanted web traffic.

Malicious apps that diminish a Mac user’s Internet surfing experience through browser hijacking are growingly common.

Feed Chunk App is a typical threat falling into this malware cluster. It redirects the traffic to feed.chunckapp.com page to push another notorious virus-riddled service called Safe Finder.

How to remove blocked plug-in on Mac

How to remove blocked plug-in on Mac

Plug-ins can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, they enable a bevy of features so that Mac users aren’t limited in their activities and the range of online materials they can view and access. On the other hand, though, a plug-in can be a weak link in one’s security set-up if it’s crudely designed or heavily targeted by malicious actors. To keep users safe, Apple may disable such known-vulnerable entities, displaying “Blocked Plug-in” alerts. These messages can also be shown by malware to tout additional infections.

Remove com.apple.tcc permissions abusing virus on Mac

Just like any other operating system, macOS encompasses a plethora of not-so-prominent directories that manage various configuration parameters. These objects aren’t intended for routine edits by the user, nor are they visible anywhere in the Dock or other conspicuous elements of the graphical user interface. An object called com.apple.tcc fits the mold of these maintenance-related items many Mac fans are clueless about. However, it may come to the fore in certain scenarios as a source of security issues.

How to remove Advanced Mac Cleaner virus from Mac OS X

Some Mac applications do what’s promised, but some only pretend to be useful. The activity of Advanced Mac Cleaner definitely doesn’t exceed the primitive mimicking of optimization as it reports inexistent issues. The mix of intimidation and deceit, as viewed by this app’s authors, is the right marketing strategy to ensure license purchases in exchange for dummy cleanup of the host system.
