How to remove SearchBaron.com virus from Mac

Any web browser is intended to be an ultimately user-friendly tool where the whole customization and features are at one’s fingertips. Ideally, things are just as smooth as that and don’t deviate from the norm unless a piece of malware interferes with a victim’s web experience.

How to remove MacReviver malware

Most features built into macOS are remarkably balanced to fit the broad context of a seamless user experience. However, the system and its components need a cleanup once in a while to stay productive, and this could be easier said than done. To avoid cumbersome manual fine-tunings, many users resort to automatic solutions that supposedly do it in a few clicks. Although the app called MacReviver claims to be like that, it makes empty promises and causes issues instead.

Remove EvilQuest Mac ransomware and restore encrypted files

Ransomware is far less common in the macOS environment than threats like adware and scareware, and yet such detrimental cybercriminal campaigns are exploding once in a while. EvilQuest, the latest Mac ransomware spreading through contagious pirated apps, stands out from the rest. In addition to encrypting a victim’s files, it pilfers some of them. What’s worse, the attackers appear to provide no viable way of decrypting the data even if the ransom is paid.
