    Hey guys,

    I'm very concerned about this. I was reading the news, just another boring day...then little snitch pops up regarding authorization to establish connection to :

    An.Tacoda.net

    Before deciding i did a quick google search. Didn't like what i saw and denied the connection

    And now, take a look at this:

    Remove unwanted adware that displays pop-up ads and graphics on your Mac
    Adware can be removed by using this tool: AdwareMedic

    Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released over 12 years ago. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which can be easily avoided by practicing safe computing (see below). 3rd party antivirus apps are not necessary to keep a Mac malware-free, as long as a user practices safe computing, as described in the following link.
    Read the What security steps should I take? section of the Mac Virus/Malware FAQ for tips on practicing safe computing.

    Are you using Safari?

    If so, go to Safari-Preferences-Privacy and disable location services for all websites (sorry, my system is not in english so I don't exactly know how the options are named).

    Maybe that'll help.
