After finding my virus's on my Android phone I'm attempting to secure everything. I believe my Mac is infected at the recovery partition and reinstalling does no good. I need help going through some Wireshark data and also the results of the arp -a and ifconfig.

Please let me know if any of the results I have posted are out of the ordinary and what else I can do. I'm pretty sure they can see everything I type and changing my wifi security is pointless. The android phone was infected with trojan.lezok.as and I have not yet been able to remove it and it just comes back after a hard reset. I'm using a MacBook Pro Mid 2012 running Mojave 10.14.6. Malwarebytes scan shows clean on the laptop so I think the intrusion is network based and phone.

    Why do you "believe your Mac is infected at the recovery partition and reinstalling does no good"? – lhf Aug 31 at 10:55

The results of arp -a just show the other devices connected on your LAN's 192.168.1.x subnet.
1 is likely to be your router and 255 the broadcast address. 13 is your Mac. There seem to be 7 other devices connected to it. You can always set a whitelist of devices in your router's web control panel.

224.0.0.251 is a multicast mDNS address.

The results of ipconfig are, unsurprisingly, just configuration settings for your network interfaces.

If Malwarebytes finds nothing, then in the absence of any other evidence or data, I would be quietly confident that there was no infection. If your Android phone was infected, it is almost impossible that the same malware would work on a Mac.

The best thing you can do is check in System Prefs > Network that your DNS settings point to known, good servers. I recommend 1.1.1.1.
