  1. Guys, thank you for the useful links!
  2. Today I read the news about the virus: "Infections like Safe Finder break the stereotype of malware-free Macs. In fact, browser hijackers and ads-serving threats pose, by far, the prevalent category of offending software affecting this operating system. The impact from such attacks normally won’t go beyond Internet surfing alone, but the restricted scope of adverse influence doesn’t make these occurrences any less abominable than other farther-reaching breaches. The above-mentioned app reroutes its victim’s Safari, Chrome and Firefox preferences to search.safefinder.com. What this means is the unwelcome page will be popping up instead of the custom homepage, favorite search engine and new tab. Furthermore, the same effect may occur when the user simply enters an arbitrary site’s URL in the address bar. This indicates that the hijacker also skews DNS settings on infected Mac OS X boxes. " Maybe it was him?
  3. Steve, thanks for the tip! Because the external hard drive to backup must be very large. What you have to offer, it is an outlet for me !
