    Hi I'm getting a webpage opening automatically while a browse with chrome, I guess i got a maleware or something

    Sometimes is a page that tells me to update Flash, sometimes is a fake Apple website telling me I got infected

    Any suggestion on how to get rid of it?

    I'm on the latest Os 10.12.15

    First virus in 15 years of Mac, time are changing...

    Damn

    That's not a virus and you spelled "malware" wrong.

    Actually.... considering where malware typically comes from, I think the OP probably spelled it right. Lol.

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for mac is your friend.
    Put it on every mac you own that has at least 10.7.5 on it, and run a scan weekly to make sure you dont have malware creeping around in there.

    I was going to suggest femaleware to keep the maleware in check. ;)

    (Interestingly, when I typed in "malware" it auto-corrected to malware.)
