Besides not downloading programs from untrusted sources, how does a Mac user prevent themselves from getting adware? AdBlock in Google Chrome/Firefox? I understand that even a knowledgeable Mac user can fall victim to adware, but would it be possible to prevent it instead of being reactive to adware?
I'm running Linux and I have not had any security problems at all. Well, unless I get something similar to this which I already know it's fake:https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r30729526-Scam-microsoftalerts3-com-Tech-Support-Scam
Really, tech support scammers could take advantage of gullible Mac users (no offense to those who are not experienced enough to stay safe online). They will have to steal Apple's website's look and feel to convince Mac users that their Mac computer is infected and needs to call a 1-855 number that's on the screen.
