How to clean Mac from viruses?
One way or another, many viruses for macOS masquerade as completely safe utilities - for example, Flash Player or the “cleaners” described above.
Most often, infection of a macbook is accompanied by rogue advertising in a browser window with a suggestion to clean the Mac system. Of course, we will not agree to this.
It just so happened that it is much more difficult to clean the MacBook from viruses than to remove some trojan from the PC. The matter lies precisely in the specifics: on a MacBook, the virus, in fact, is not such in the usual understanding of this definition, which somewhat complicates the search for a malicious program.
Often viruses may not be software programs at all. Hackers can change the DNS service on your Mac (or a router, but this is another case), which may lead to the appearance of ads or, even worse, to spoof and redirect web pages, which will allow hackers to gain data about your bank cards and other data.
Fortunately, this sounds worse than it actually is. You just need to check the DNS server in the system settings. To do this, click System Preferences and select Network. After that, press the Advanced button. In case extraneous addresses are set in the DNS tab, they can and should be removed quickly. Be careful not to remove the address of your router. It can be found in the filed called Routers. More info about Mac malware can be found on this website: https://macsecurity.net/
