Question: infection report

All of a sudden, I am getting a constant infection report for my Charter Security Report. When I ran the scan, it should no infections. Here is what they say:

1. /private/tmp/mmUpdLaunchMe Suspicious:OSX/PossiblyUnwanted.26e9d8bc!Online

2. /private/tmp/mmLaunchMe adware/osx.surfbuyer.arvsd

I have gotten these report continously since I got on my computer this morning - 10 times for #1 and once for #2.


I never had this problem until installing High Sierra. Before that I had Yosemite.

iMac, Other OS, OS High Sierra 4 GB memory

Uninstall the software. It is not compatible with High Sierra. Upgrade it. You don't need it. To deal with adware:

And what do you base that reply on?


1) You seem to love using the word "virus", regardless of the provable fact that there is not, and never has been a virus that can affect the Mac OS.


2) You state the problem as fact that it's due to MyCouponize. Yet, the instructions you link to don't show a single name in the OP's report above.


Result. Your post is for no purpose other than to promote your site. Advertising is not allowed on these forums. And posting a disclaimer doesn't change that, or make the post okay.
