We had a mac with malware today *gasp* *horror*
It was actually pretty easy to kill.
look in /Library/Internet Plug-ins.
Look in ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins (go to the Go menu in finder, select go to folder and type ~/Library to access the folder on 10.7+)
Delete sketchy things – this will include toolbars, cash or coupons extensions, search helpers, etc.
Look in /Library/Launch Agents/ and /Library/Launch Daemons/
remove vsearch junk.
Remove sketchy things from the applications folder (like conduit – again, you’ll likely recognize what qualifies as ‘sketchy’)
Reboot and verify.
