Question:

Question: After this upgrade Safari has become a sitting duck for nuisance sites especially MacKeeper.

After the recent update, Safari has become extremely vulnerable to attacks from browser hijacker sites, most notable of all being MacKeeper. Pages either don't load or some other stuff pops up and most importantly "select" and "go back" options are disabled. Tried almost all tricks available free on internet & Youtube to get rid of browser hijackers, but didn't work. As a last resort, downloaded Adguard software, still unable to prevent browser from being hijacked. BTW my system is a Mac 27.5k (2015) running on latest release "High Sierra" version 10.13.1.

Request Apple to seriously look into the matter and design/suggest a fix for this problem.


Thanks & best regards,

You're not talking to Apple here, just other users like yourself. If you want to make this known to Apple use feedback:

Although this is not a bug in Mac OS, most users are not experiencing this.

Here are some troubleshooting tips:

Empty Caches (Safari menu > Preferences > Privacy > Remove all website data. (This will also remove history if you do not want to remove History open Safari Preferences > Advanced and check mark “Show Develop Menu” then choose “Empty Caches” from Develop Menu ) If the problem persists download and run MalwareBytes. Malwarebytes was developed by one of our own colleagues here in ASC. It gets rave reviews and is about the most proven anti-malware software for Mac.
