How to Uninstall the Mac Security Spyware

The Mac Security spyware is a rogue anti-spyware made to attack the Mac Operating System, this spyware attacks a lot of online Mac users simply because it hides behind hacked websites and images shown on image search engine results. If you click infected images or visit the infected websites, your browser will be redirected to a fake website which will  post an ad which will pretend to scan your computer, at the end of the scan, it will inform you that your computer has been severely infected by viruses and it will initiate a software download after.

Once the download ends, the virus will ask you to install the software yourself, after you have installed the software, the Mac Security virus will now have the access to start each and every time you Login to your computer. On your next Login, the spyware will then activate a threat scanner and will then inform you of the malicious files found on your computer. The Mac Security virus will also ask you to fix your computer, but will only allow you to delete the files if you will purchase the licensed version of their software. Of course, the scanners are all fake applications, the threats are non-existent and it is the Mac Security scam utility itself taking advantage of your computer in the hopes of stealing your money once you decide to purchase their software. The Mac Security malware is also smart enough to add itself on your account’s login items so that it will keep on running as soon as you login to your Mac. This malware also does not have a Dock, and this is why you need to go through the termination process before you can remove it from your computer.

Scroll through the list and locate the Mac Security program, Right-click on the program and click on the Move to Trash option. If your Mac Operating System asks for your password, authorize the action and finalize the Mac Shield removal.

Click on the Apple Menu on the icon and select System Preferences menu option. Select the Accounts option under the System category and then click on the Login Items button.
