Apple Posts Instructions on How to Remove Mac Defender Malware

Posted on May 25, 2011 by

Apple has posted a support article on how to remove some of the recent malware that has targeted Mac users. If you’re not familiar with these phishing scams, check out the article we posted last week. The malware has to be installed by the user and in no way harms the operating system, it’s only purpose is to try and convince the user that the computer is infected with viruses and tells them they need to give their credit card information before it can be cleaned. Of course, there are no viruses for OS X, so the user should know that this is just a scam. But for some reason people still fall for things like this.
