The shelling of macOS based computers with adware is steadily gaining momentum. There are several new noxious apps of this kind that were released at about the same time and share a few unique malicious characteristics. Obviously, this affinity isn’t accidental and the infections have common roots, indicating that at least one cyber-gang is busy taking it up a notch. The pest that will be analyzed in this entry is called WindowGroup.

The black hat industry coining browser malware has seen a tremendous spike this year. Some of these infections entail iterative redirects of one’s web traffic, while others result in bothersome ads being displayed on sites. The new malicious Mac app called Extra Browser combines both of these adverse effects under the same umbrella. As the outbreak of this campaign is underway, keeping abreast with its details is an important prerequisite of tackling the attack.

How to Remove ForBrowser 1.0 virus from Mac

Adware is a rapidly growing concern for Mac users. It spans apps that hijack web preferences and inject ads into visited sites without asking for permission. This fall, the sketchy activity appears to be reaching new heights with the emergence of pests like ForBrowser. It redirects victims’ Internet traffic to search engine copycats further leading to Yahoo or Bing, and it additionally causes the browser to crash off and on.

How to remove Manager Pages app virus from Mac

If you ask a cybersecurity analyst what form of malicious code is targeting Macs the most these days, they’ll tell you it’s adware. This cluster of viruses doesn’t hit the headlines too much due to its relatively mild impact, but the moneymaking potential is enough to incentivize the crooks to keep extending their reach. ManagerPages, for example, is one of the latest adware apps fully exemplifying the logic of this plague.

Remove Coordinator Plus app virus from Mac

Browser hijacking is one of the top security issues in the Mac climate. The average malware attack of that sort isn’t in the severe ‘red’ area as far as the impact is concerned, which allows cybercrooks to avoid crossing the line and carry on with these campaigns for years. However, their tactics are getting refined, as is the case of the Coordinator Plus virus. The app pretends to be a useful web surfing enhancement tool but turns one’s browsing upside down.
