I recently made a purchase online in my Mac and I realized there's a browser hijacker Malware named Chill-Tab on my computer. Should I be worried or is this Malware not that harmful?

I second that you download and run MalwareBytes.

IMPORTANT:
MalwareBytes will prompt you to "upgrade" to the paid version.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS. It will run FOREVER in "free mode" (shouting intentional).

MB is an excellent piece of Mac software...

I did a google search and found pertinent info within 30 seconds. It said “no.”

I suggest you do the same.


Would you be kind enough to share the link of the information that you found? I’ve been googling before I posted this but I can’t find a good enough answer. Thanks.
