    Flashback Trojan Malware found by CalmxAV. What should I do Next?

    if I'm in the wrong forum, please redirect me :)

    Just this week, on two of my macs ClamxAV has found the flashback trojan. Both are running El Capitan 10.11.6 .One mac has Java installed the other does not.

    In the mac with Java, I deleted it through ClamxAV. ClamxAV would only allow removing it.

    in the ClamxAV log on the mac with out JAVA it shows as the source as being the application Firefox. Again, ClamxAV would only allow removing it..

    Quick reads through the web talk about it being in bedded in a 'fake' install of Firefox. Don't know if that is true.

    Any suggestions what to do next? - Thanks

    You said you removed it. Go get a cup of coffee.

    hmm, thanks for the offer. I take mine black, but after noon it usually keeps me up at night. :)
    Let me rephrase. Is there anything else I should do to ensure there are no reminents that could be of concern.

    I'd download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware for Mac.
    It's free.
