A pop-up warning deceived me to update my flash player, instead of an upgrade; a malware was installed on my Mac computer. Now, each time I am browsing the internet, Safari is redirected to a page pretending to be AppleCare Products page. It states that several viruses were found on my Mac and it especially state that E.tre456_worm_osx could really harm the system. It wants me to download scanner but I refuse even though this specific instruction guarantees the removal of E.tre456_worm_osx virus.
Any help and suggestions will be highly appreciated.January 5, 2019 at 2:22 am #1079MFixerGuest
