  1. Hello everyone. I installed Adware Doctor from the mac app store thinking it was a legitimate application. I ran it and it removed my browsers' extensions, cookies, and caches, something I could have done manually. I researched the app and found out it is a junk application that poses a security risk. I've watched YouTube videos that claim the application steals browser history and app store searches, retrieves all your application and processes information, and sends it to a Chinese server. I quickly uninstalled the application, turned on my mac firewall, and changed my admin account password. I also installed malwarebytes, ran a scan, and it showed my mac was clean. However, I am worried about what the developers could do to my mac with the data they retrieved. What I want to know is: am I ok? If not, what else should I do to be safe?
