Trojan.fakeAV virus on Mac
Hi there, I have just installed the new NIS5 for mac on my macbook pro as I was concerned about a potential security threat. The system scan is showing a virus with the label Trojan.FakeAV housed in an MS office backup file, and when i click to delete it deletes the item but does not move it to quarantine. I was slightly unsatisified with the result of the deletion so I ran the scan again and NIS identified the same file again in the same folder, even after it had supposedly be deleted. I have suffered a number of security issues in the last couple of weeks which appear to be related to this (credit card compromisation and website hacking) so am keen to get rid of it asap - can anyone provide me with any advice? I am running Osx Lion. Thanks, Andy
