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.
You should be concerned about privacy, even if you have "nothing to hide."
