Redirecting malware; malwarebytes doesnt recongnize

Recommended Posts

I have been facing the malware issue where the browser gets redirected multiple times ultimately to a phishing attempt.

earlier this was on both my laptops for which I realised the issue was with the modem/router.

but even after changing the modem and updating the firmware, I still face the issue but only on macOS.

MalwareBytes says the system is clean, while I don't see anything strange on my laptop manually as well.

please suggest a fix! Thank you.

Are you still being redirected on the Mac from other sites to the phishing site, or is Safari just opening this phishing page each time you open a new window or tab?

If the latter, Safari is probably trying to re-open the last page opened. Try opening Safari's preferences, then go to the General tab, and change the first four settings.

If it's still actively redirecting, try restarting in recovery mode (hold down command-R at startup), then choose the option to Get Help Online to open a fresh copy of Safari. Do you see the same problem there?
