Wait. What? Macs get malware? Joseph Keller explains:
My father-in-law’s MacBook Pro had been running into curious slowdowns for a two-year-old laptop and he kept on seeing weird sites taking over his Safari and Firefox search bars. It was clear to me that his browser had been hijacked.
This situation is remarkably common. Why?
Upon further investigation, I found a couple of self-professed “Mac security programs” that popped up, demanding money to “clean your Mac from junk”.
