Mac Defender Virus

Mac Defender Malware hits the Mac

Mac computers havent got viruses like PCs, which has been a source of pride
for Apple’s many followers.

However, that’s all changed as a piece of malware called Mac Defender is
buzzing around the web, pretending to be antivirus software and offering to
clean up your Mac. Naturally, with this being malware, it actually doesn’t do
your computer much good and instead, is after is your money.

The Mac Defender software cons Mac owners into handing over their credit
card details. What happens is that, once it’s on your Mac, you’ll suddenly get
flooded with porn sites opening up on your computer, making you think you’ve
got a virus (not much use if you tend to look at nothing but porn in the first
place).

Then, here’s the sneaky part, Mac Defender asks you to pay for a
subscription and lo! The porn vanishes from your Mac! Alas, it has your credit
card details and baddies can do as they wish with it.

So look out for that, and its variants called Mac Security and Mac
Protector.

Mercifully, you should be able to remove these threats pretty easily by
simply removing it by deleting the app from the Applications folder. Any
problems there and you can open up Activity Monitor, click on Mac Defender and choose
the Quit Process button before deleting the app.

Com2U Pattaya soi ume

The rumours are true, we’re opening our retail / service centre in Pattaya. After having performed over 1800 service calls in Bangkok in 2011 so far we’re looking to expand our operations in Pattaya. We’re expecting demand to be high in due to the large number of expatriates and expat retirees, who frequently need help with their computer. Our new service centre is conveniently located on soi ume (right next to Carrefour) We have a large bright retail area where you can interact with our tech staff. For Pattaya we also have a genius bar and we are selling reconditioned computers with warrantee from as little as B2500!
