Is this a Virus?
ClamXav is reporting I have a virus - BC.Heuristic.Trojan.SusPacked.BF-6.B - in my (Thunderbird) Inbox but can't find anything on the internet about this affecting a Mac. Is this a false positive?
I have a MacBook Pro running Lion 10.7.5.

Looks like a win32 virus but why wouldn't you delete it to be safe anyway?

Even though a Windows virus won't affect you directly, it's still not a good idea to just the infected file sit there. You don't want to pass the file on later and become a "carrier."
It would probably also be a good idea to find the person who sent you the message with the infected file, and let them know.
If you're not a clairvoyant, then you shouldn't be speaking for a dead guy.
I'm here to talk about Apple stuff, and related tech stuff. Your political beliefs? I really couldn't care less about.
