I ran a security test at and the results said that my mac is not secure because the security test was able to detect this information about my computer. The test results are posted below this paragraph.
The majority of information you will see is made possible, not because of spyware, but because you are missing a security patch or do not have a patch management program.
Your IP Address 64********* ?Your Notice! Your Private IP is *********** and unlike your
external IP of *********** this should be hidden!
Patch software found here & see our Internal IP page. ?The Referring Site is ?Your Browser is Safari on Mac ?Java Enabled = Yes .
Free Spyware Removal instructions will appear below if spyware is found:
Below is the Raw Data that you give away every time you visit a web site.?REMOTE_ADDR=*******************?REMOTE_HOST= *******************?REMOTE_USER=?HTTP_USER_AGENT=M ozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/417.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/417.9.2?HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR=?HTTP_REFERRER=?HTTP_ REFERER= adl*******8
Is there a way to disable the function that is displaying information about the OS that I am using, my web browser, and my IP address without compromising performance ? any info about how to make my Mac more secure would be appreciated
QUOTE Thanks
