    Anyone using Sophos Anti-virus 7.3.4C? Do you like it? Do you feel protected? I just installed it after my friend insisted I get it and try it, It did find a malicious Trojan Horse which I thought Macs were immune to, I guess the growing popularity of the Apple brand is attracting Mac Hackers now as well. Any feedback positive or negative is welcome thanks...

    OK, thanks. Here's the information regarding this trojan (and it is a Mac trojan) LINK.

    Imac 27", i7 3.5GHz, 3TB Fusion drive, 32GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Once again make sure you uncheck 'Open safe files after downloading' box at the foot of Safari Preferences > General. Does need authority to run the trojan.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
