Anti-Malware, Monitoring, and Privacy

  Your Mac is secure - but your actions are not secure.  Apple
  does a good job to protect us from malware. However we still
  get tricked into installing malware on our Macs. And I am
  finding malware on way too many Macs. Just because you see
  the promise to "Clean Your Mac" or "Make Your Mac Faster",
  what you are looking at is click bate to get you to install
  malware. Remember Krebs's first rule--If you didn't go
  looking for it, don't install it!

  So far Malwarebytes has been sufficient to check and remove
  malware. Scan with Malwarebytes every week.

  Patrick Wardle's security tools are proactive serving to
  protect, monitor and alert. However, some understanding of
  how your computer works is required.

  AppCleaner is a small application which allows you to
  thoroughly uninstall unwanted apps. Installing an
  application distributes many files throughout your System
  using space of your Hard Drive unnecessarily. AppCleaner
  finds all these small files and safely deletes them.

      Scan and Remove malware.

  2.  Download, Install to Applications, KnockKnock
      https://objective-see.com/products.html

      To run the application and begin a scan, simply double
      click on KnockKnock.app and press the 'Start Scan'
      button. KnockKnock will scan known locations where
      persistent software or malware may be installed. By
      design, it simply lists persistently installed software.
      Although signed-Apple binaries are filtered out,
      legitimate 3rd-party software will likely be displayed.

      The left-handle table contains the categories of
      persistent software that KnockKnock scans. Each row
      contains the name and brief description of the category,
      and the number of detected items. Clicking on any of the
      categories will display the items for that category in
      the right-hand items' table.

OverSight
  https://objective-see.com/products.html

  One of the most insidious actions of malware, is abusing the
  audio and video capabilities of an infected host to record
  an unknowing user. Macs, of course, are not immune; malware
  such as OSX/FruitFly, OSX/Crisis, OSX/Mokes, and others, all
  attempt to spy on Mac users. OverSight constantly monitors a
  system, alerting a user whenever the internal microphone is
  activated, or the built-in webcam is accessed. And yes,
  while the webcam's LED will turn on whenever a session is
  initially started, new research has shown that malware can
  surreptitious piggyback into such existing sessions
  (FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.) and record both
  audio and video - without fear of detection.

  As with any security tool, direct or proactive attempts to
  specifically bypass OverSight's protections will likely
  succeed. Moreover, the current version over OverSight
  utilizes user-mode APIs in order to monitor for audio and
  video events. Thus any malware that has a kernel-mode or
  rootkit component may be able to access the webcam and mic
  in an undetected manner.

  prying eyes. Iowa State requires its students to use a VPN.

What's Your Sign
  https://www.objective-see.com/products/whatsyoursign.html

  WhatsYourSign is utility with a simple goal: from the UI,
  make it trivial to view any file's cryptographic signing
  information. A file or binary's cryptographic signature is
  important as it can determine its creator (Apple proper, a
  3rd-party, etc). Moreover, it can help determine whether a
  file should be trusted. For example, binaries signed by
  Apple can (always?) be trusted, while files that are
  unsigned may be untrusted or even malicious.
