Title: Simple Tips to Secure a Mac from Malware, Viruses, & Trojans


1
Simple Tips to Secure a Mac from Malware,
Viruses, Trojans
2
Disable Java
  • 1a) Disable Java in Safari
  • Open Safari and pull down the Safari menu,
    selecting Preferences
  • Click on the Security tab and uncheck the box
    next to Enable Java
  • 1b) Disable Java System-Wide in Mac OS X
  • Open the Applications folder and then open the
    Utilities folder
  • Launch the Java Preferences application
  • Uncheck the box next to Enable applet plug-in
    and Web Start applications
  • Uncheck all the boxes next to Java SE in the
    list below

3
Update Apps and OS X Software Regularly
  • Open Software Update from the ? Apple menu and
    install updates when available
  • Open the App Store and download available updates

4
Disable or Remove Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader has had different security
    ruptures as of late, in this manner you'll be
    more secure without it in your web program.
    There's little motivation to have Reader
    introduced on a Mac at any rate, OS X
    incorporates Preview for survey PDF's. Uninstall
    Adobe Acrobat Reader by running the packaged
    uninstaller application, or find the accompanying
    record and expel it to uninstall the Acrobat
    program module
  • /Library/Internet Plug-ins/AdobePDFViewer.plugin

5
Install Anti-Virus Software for Mac OS X
  • Utilizing hostile to infection programming on the
    Mac is likely needless excess, yet it merits
    saying once more. We've discussed the free Sophos
    against infection here some time recently, and
    however you most likely won't ever require it,
    it's a free and viable approach to battle
    infections that may wind up on the Mac. In case
    you're the mindful sort and you'd preferably be
    sheltered than sorry there isn't much damage to
    utilizing it as a precaution measure
  • Download Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac

6
Dont Install Random Software You Didnt Ask For
  • On the off chance that you see an irregular
    pop-up window requesting that you introduce
    arbitrary programming you didn't ask for, don't
    introduce it! This may seem like sound judgment,
    yet it's entirely some Mac malware spread before.
    Apple fixed the opening that considered that to
    happen a while back, however the general message
    is still significant in the event that you
    didn't download or ask for an application to be
    introduced and you're all of a sudden faced with
    an establishment exchange, don't introduce it.
