What are the signs my Mac has a virus You get popup ads advertising Microsoft products. Should I go to one of those computer scanning sites to see if it has a virus Those sites are just as likely to infect it as they are to fix it. In fact, most of them will give you fake warnings to get you to download their software to spam you all the time. I’m not really familiar with all of this. They did not used to make viruses for the Mac. Not enough people had Macs to make it worth the effort. It’s all the fault of Apple’s.
Why would someone do that Hackers often take over computers to send out junk email, paid per million messages sent. Others use the machines to send out links to infect computers, then use the zombies for coordinated denial of service attacks. That’ll slow down my connection and system operations. It’ll shut down almost anyone else’s servers, though denial of service attacks on Google and Amazon have mostly failed. What else should I know If you think your Mac has a virus, know that one of the prime targets is stealing your.
