Lately many users have been getting infected by a Mac / Apple Defender application in a pop-up window, claiming that your infected and need to install this application. The application in the pop up is a virus, do not install, do not enter your password, and do not give it any credit card information. This program harvests credit card information, and always replies by stating your credit card is no good. Apple Care will not help you solve the issue if your infected. Please backup all your data, and format the drive if you become infected, you may contact us by email for any assistance. Make sure you do a complete format to rid of the virus.
