HI, my Mac is infected with the same annoying popups. I sent all download files to the trash, restarted Safari while holding the shift key down. I also restarted the computer while holding the shift key down for a soft boot. I still have the annoying popups. I think this came in the guise of a phony Adobe Flash update. I know this is phishing in the hope of getting my credit card information. The phony sites I'm being directed to look exactly like the real apple sites. Any ideas on getting rid of the popups?Close the tab & totally do not press the Scan Now button. These messages are a hoax.
Hi Honestone. I tried downloading the Malwarebytes link. I am told it's a program for MS Windows and it's not Mac supported. Do you know of any alternatives?
Man, that statement, so, so valid, brings back some recent memories! I used to teach Mathematics courses (on a part-time basis) at a couple of Community Colleges from January 2006 though June 2011, and no matter how many times I would encourage questions, there were still a number of students who were reluctant to do just that. As it is, it became more and more discouraging to teach, even at that level. Too many students felt they were "entitled" to things, but not needing to do any of the required work. I could relay so many stories, it would make one's head spin!There are no "silly" questions. I had an algebra teacher many years ago say after he dazzled with his footwork on the blackboard, "No questions? Those who refuse to ask questions deserve to remain ignorant. " My hand went right up.
