Thread: mac malware? VBS-Malware-gen
02-06-2014, 10:12 PM #1mac malware? VBS-Malware-gen
on my bank site today, something weird happened. got redirected to a site that looked weird. called the bank and they didnt seem to be too worried about it.
so I got to thinking. 22 yrs i've never had a virus/malware that i've known of. I've always used some sort of free AV on mac. Ive been using clamsXav...
after this weird bank issue, I ditched clamX, installed Avast and did a full scan.
and it found what it called malware. VBS-Malware-gen is what it said. see screenshot.
is this a real threat or false? the file it flagged was a wordpress plugin called:
Add to any version 1.2.7

mine did not flag Autorun.inf... it was flagging a zip file for a wordpress plugin I use.
I sent the file to the virus chest and deleted it.
