Smart Mac Booster – Why Do I Have It and What Can It Do?

The Smart Mac Booster unwanted application is being effectively distributed via freeware installers and bundled packages. You can get your Mac affected by it without even being aware, that the Smart Mac Booster has installed on your machine with a freeware installation or bundled package. You might avoid this, by unchecking options under the Advanced or Custom tab of an installation suite. Visiting suspicious sites, for instance the site of the Smart Mac Booster PUP, might get the program installed to your Mac.

Smart Mac Booster is a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and it is developed by the company PCVARK. The company is known to have lots of applications which are considered PUPs and also pushes advertisements along with their software to promote other applications. Smart Mac Booster is known to show advertising pop-ups (such as the one displayed to the right of this paragraph).

Smart Mac Booster could show a reasonably convincing, but fake variant of the normal OS X dialog message box which says that no suitable app is installed. The fake message box links to the official Smart Mac Booster website, owned by PCVARK, which tries to install Mac Adware Remover or similar applications. All these programs have a valid, Apple-provided developer certificate, thus macOS will install them without prompting a warning or a notification of any sort.

This message tries to trick many Mac users, with scare tactics, into installing more junk on their machines.
