    Yes, delete it.

    If you haven't already, read the What security steps should I take? section of the Mac Virus/Malware FAQ for tips on practicing safe computing.

    GGJstudios...Thank you. I had in fact followed most of those recommendations from that guide, but have now also changed my DNS server as well. Also deleted that file.

    Can I just delete the foundation.framework file and everything in it?

    I have the /System/Library/Frameworks/Foundation.framework/XPCServices/ directory, but I really have no idea how. I haven't run anything in Java on this Mac besides Minecraft, and it's a fairly recent installation of Mavericks. I'm suspecting that this isn't actually malware. The article's from 2012, and it says Mountain Lion isn't vulnerable.
