MAC too needs anti-malware protection


The very thought that MACs are completely safe and does not need any anti-virus protection is taking a back seat day by day. Yes, nothing is fully protected on its own.

Also never ever download from random sites. It is always advisable to use MAC app store. If that is not available then from the softwares official sites. Pop-ups should not be trusted. They are usually the first ones to harm your MAC.

Keep old plug-ins away: Java, Flash are some of the common plug-ins of the initial web world. However, they are mostly out of use these days.that is exactly the reason that these are mostly loaded with malware. So it is better to disable these plug-ins. Also disabling them won't be of much trouble as they are rarely needed. MACs official browser generally disables them by default. It is still better to have a check.

Use free anti-virus for MAC: Using free anti-virus software that are designed exclusively for MAC can be a good choice. These software have a better understanding of the MAC and ther4eby gives the best protection. To name a few, there are Avast, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for MAC,
Sophos etc.

Periodic scans: one must always run malware scans periodically. That will help keep a check on your systems condition and prevent damage. Also using or unknowing devices without scanning is a strict NO. You must always run scan virus on the device.


Following these few security details will definitely help you keep your MACs life good and prevent any unwanted disturbance and also malware attacks.

CCleaner: Is It a Safe Software?


CCleaner is a free anti malware tool. The same was developed by a Company which is based in London, known as Piriform. The anti malware tool was recently damaged which affected over 2 million users worldwide. The developer company is presently owned by renowned software security firm Avast.   

The company says that its download servers were compromised with during some time after the 15th of August this year shortly after it released its version v5.33.6162 . This happened owing to a data leak which also led to the injection of the second malware payload into the use PC to affect the same in the long run.

About CCleaner


CCleaner has over 2.27 million users globally. It has already been noted in the past that these hackers could do anything to earn street credit cards and money. Experts feel that is a form of industrial espionage which could ultimately destroy a country’s defense. 

It is being assumed that this was one of those attacks or it can be just for fun. It could also be just to show a large company like Avast that their security is breakable. However the exact reason for this hacking attack is yet to be known.

The virus attack: it’s impact

Researchers in the field are of the opinion the CCleaner malware was particularly worrisome because it somehow made it onto software that could be executed using Piriform’s valid security certificate. They also feel that the malware which was used is almost undetectable one out of 64 antiviruses can detect its presence.

It was also noted by the research team that this was the same malware that created the chaos on June, 2017. The attack back then had crippled thousands of business machines worldwide. The wiper malware was used for doing this attack back then. The same  was distributed from a legitimate tax accounting software from Ukrainian company M.E.Doc.

Steps to resolve the problem


“Piriform” has promised to fix this on the next version 5.34 which will be available on their official website.
However the big question here is who hacked the software? Was something which was done hackers or was it inside job? Or could it just be a publicity stunt? The fact is that if it was an attack from outside, then the company would not be so very concerned with the issue .Of course this type marketing is quite common with many companies.
As per the company, it is taking many corrective steps internally so that these incidents do not get repeated in the future. However this incident only is another reason why you as an internet user must be more cautious from here on. The following are certain steps you could use in this direction:
  •         You must try using strong passwords always
  •         Try never using personal information in your password

  •          It is best to have  unique passwords for each website
  •          Get into the habit of regularly changing   passwords, which may be  every 30 to 60 days
