AnalogManager is a virus with hijacking and adware capabilities. It specifically affects mac machines and belongs to the Adload malware family. It can cause an increased amount of commercial content, like redirects and spam users with ads, or banners. It may also change the main browser settings, like the homepage, new tab address, and search engine.
This raises many user privacy and security concerns as people are forced to use only selected channels for browsing. However, mac adware is much more aggressive than adware that infects Windows systems. It can run scripts in the background and download PUPs (potentially unwanted programs), and malware automatically.
