Avoid Mac Scams, Spam & Malware – MacWorks, LLC : Connecticut CT Based Apple & Macintosh Support

Don’t let this happen to your Mac!

Don’t let this happen to your Mac. A simple Safari Browser hijack opens the door to have your Macintosh compromised by disreputable companies masquerading as Apple tech support.

The only way to close the page or tab is to Force Quit the application. Unfortunately, a restart of Safari relaunches the same page and locks up the browser.

To resolve temporarily you can start Safari safely by first Force Quiting and then launching while holding down the Shift Key. A more permanent resolution can be found in the MacWorld U.K. article – http://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/mac-software/how-clear-safari-cache-3496193/

We can provide remote and onsite support to permanently resolve Mac malware and technical issues. Keep you and your employees productive and avoid costly downtime caused by these malware intrusions. We can be reached at info@macworksllc.com or by phone at 800-700-1673

“The bug bounty program could also mean that researchers will be less likely to independently publicize Apple product vulnerabilities that they uncover, said Jerry Zigmont, owner of MacWorks LLC, an Apple consultant based in Madison, Conn.

This would be a great step to take just to sort of thwart any big sensationalized headlines that don’t necessarily have a lot of merit,” Zigmont said. “We’ve seen this before, where you read something in the paper about an Apple security vulnerability, but it’s just proof of concept—a lot of these are not out in the wild.”

“Jerry Zigmont, owner of MacWorks LLC, an Apple consultant based in Madison, Conn.:

Negative reaction is knee-jerk. “Any negative reaction on social media is knee jerk. If you look at the pricing from yesterday, at every price point with the new Macs, there are speed increases in processor, memory, and graphics.

“There still are going to be holes in their product line to take issue with but I don’t think pricing is one of them.

“Apple has never catered to the low-end market, looking to produce sub-$1K Macs.
