This infection is spread through spam, hacked sites that have poisoned the search results for image search engines such as Google Images, and hacked sites that infect you when you visit them. When you click on images belonging to the hacked sites, you will automatically be redirected to a page that shows an advertisement that pretends to be a fake online scanner. When these fake scans are finished, it will state that your computer is infected and then automatically download the Mac Guard program onto your computer. Once the program has finished downloading, the installer will start and prompt you to install the program.
