    Hi,

    Im having the same problem with .BlackJackDrop.png plug-in. A box keeps coming up on my macbook pro saying "Safari quit unexpectedly while using the .BlackJackDrop.png plug-in". This is happening often & shuts down Safari in the middle of me using the net.

    I think its some sort of casino card game I must have loaded without realising (Im not that computer savvy). Ive tried to find a folder and/or plugin but there is no sign anywhere.

    Can somebody help me find & remove it?? I would very much appreciate it.

    found it

    I downloaded a free anti virus for mac (sophos) & it found the problem. I deleted the BlackJackDrop but it affected Safari which meant I couldnt get on the net. I reloaded my applications from my CD & the problem was solved. I thought there was easier way but seems like no one out there had any idea. Oh well.

    Glad to hear you figured it out. May I recommend a backup browser? Chrome should do nicely. This way if something in Safari gets clogged up again at least you can get on the net. I use Chrome as my main browser despite the fact Safari is slightly faster. Why? Because of the handful of malware and exploits affecting OS X, most relate to weaknesses in Safari.

    Whether you decide to use another browser or not, at least update Safari security settings so it is not set to "automatically open safe files". When it comes to stuff on the internet, there are no safe file types and Apple should have never made this the default setting.

    I would recommend getting rid of Sophos. As you saw, it didn't really help in the right way, but more importantly, it introduces additional security risks. If you feel you need an anti-virus program, then try ClamXav (available on the App Store). However, simply disabling Java in Safari would have most likely been sufficient, without any third-party software.
