    As the title says AVG antivirus is finding rootkits on the OSX partition on my MBP. AVG isn't finding anything on the Windows 7 partition.

    I was just wondering if this is something I should be worrying about or if these files just appear to be harmful because they are part of another operating system.

    I would say AVG doesn't know how to handle or classify OSX files
