How to protect yourself from the malicious Clear Vic program on Windows and Mac devices in 4 steps


After researchers discovered a new electronic threat called ClearFake, there are a number of steps that must be followed to protect your data from being stolen and hackers infiltrating your accounts. 
Clear Vic is used to install a dangerous malware called Atomic macOS Stealer (AMOS) on Mac and Windows devices . The malware primarily targets Apple users and steals sensitive data, according to an indiatoday report. 

Below, I know in steps how to stay safe:

In order to protect against ClearFake and other evolving threats, it is important to take proactive measures. This includes:
1 Avoid downloading software from untrusted or unknown sources. It is necessary to update Safari directly from the Mac system settings or Chrome directly from Google or the Chrome app.
2 Be careful when asking you to bypass macOS GateKeeper protections: If an app asks you to bypass these protections, it should raise a red flag, and users should be careful.
3 Verify the legitimacy of the source before downloading an app outside of the Mac App Store and check the creation date of the website to ensure it is legitimate.
4 Keeping operating systems and software up to date: This is essential to ensure security vulnerabilities are patched and the latest security features are available.
