Make sure your Mac gets update database malware

Our Mac care about security. In OS X provides a variety of tools, such as File Quarantine. This tool checks all downloaded from the Internet files and email attachments, checking them against the database of known malicious programs. It also blocks the use of web plug-ins, which were found vulnerabilities. In order to File Quarantine was always ready to protect you, he needs to receive relevant information about web plug-ins and malware. We will explain how to ensure that this information is updated.

In order to enable update of information about malware and web plug-ins, open System preferences. Select the section of the App Store and make sure that the checkbox next to “Install system files and security updates” enabled. We recommend that you always keep this feature active for security purposes.

File Quarantine works in the following way. When you download a suspicious file from the Internet, when you try to open it, OS X displays a window with information about the time of downloading the file and the source, asking if you really want to open it. If you try to open the infected file, Quarantine File check it for malware, and if something is found, the file will not open. You will be asked to move it to the trash. If malware is found in the disk image, OS X will prompt you to extract this image.

In both cases you will be asked to transmit information about the detected malware and its source in the Apple. This will help make OS X even safer. We don’t see it, but our Mac regularly get information about new vulnerabilities and the programs start to be avoided.
