    Hi,

    I ran ClamXav last night and it reported 3 files had been infected with HTML.Crypt-3 which I can't find any information about.

    Anyway, I'm less worried about this then the fact that all 3 were in the ~/Documents/KeywordAnalysis folder which I've never paid much attention to before.
    I've no idea what created it and all the files were created / modified on the same day and time.

    There are 3 folders in the KeywordAnalysis folder -

    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x   5 andy  staff  170  7 Dec 17:04 c0591e95b79e0091c80ae2ca56627390
    drwxr-xr-x   5 andy  staff  170  7 Dec 17:04 ab72f034f2043a3a1d60519e54a0903e
    drwxr-xr-x  10 andy  staff  340  7 Dec 17:04 3846718d4dad490164823179494e4006
    
    And 3 or more files in each folder -

    Code:
    -rw-r--r--  1 andy  staff  104585  7 Dec 17:04 2454431
    -rw-r--r--  1 andy  staff  104586  7 Dec 17:04 2454429
    -rw-r--r--  1 andy  staff  104585  7 Dec 17:04 2454411
    
    The files them selves are just text HTML files, like whole webpages have been downloaded from sites like CNN and the BBC.
    If I Get Info on one of the files, it contains a lot of news related keywords.

    Does anyone know what has created it?

    Thanks for that. You confirmed what I was getting from Google, I couldn't find any infection with that name so I wasn't sure.

    Any ideas where the folder came from or what application created it?
