I'm using a MacBook Air 13 "bought in 2017 with the latest software updates for Mac OSX, Mojave 10.14.1 (18B75). I've recently removed a series of annoying malware and its plugins named Weknow.ac and after that, oddly enough, several of my application badges in the menu bar appear with a blue color surrounding their area. I have tried different things, but mainly the upgrade and reinstallation of applications, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be very appreciated.
