View Full Version : About visting potentially infected pages

06-04-2017, 07:21 PM
Is it possible to be infected by just clicking on link and opening web page?

I don't have any real time scanners and use only Malwarebytes.

1) Could I be infected just by browsing something and not agreeing to any installation?

2) I heard there is no Mac malware that would install itself when just visiting websites. Is that true?

1. No.

2. No. Malware will be attracted ~ Geinio or however it is spelt is one.

Keep using Malwarebytes for Mac every week or two.

AdBlock Plus and Ghostery are recommended here often.

Hmmm…??? It seems a fellow by the name of Wallius asked almost the exact same question about four hours ago and got some varying answers:

Some of the answers makes one wonder why Apple keeps installing x-protect update files to most all users, some of which is apparently to provide a heads-up warning prior to one about to visit certain sites.
