    I have early 2013 Macbook Pro on which I have always had Intego Security, which has never identified any problems. However recently because I saw it well recommended on this forum I installed Malwarebytes, I ran it and nothing was identified.

    Today I ran a full Intego scan and it identified Malware called MRT, which I put into quarantine.

    I have no idea what this is, but am wondering if indeed it is something to do with Malwarebytes.

    Advice re. what to do would be appreciated, Thank you

    MRT is Apple's malware removal tool discussed in this article. Do the files mentioned in the article match up with what Intego is flagging? If so, Intego is showing a false positive.

    Thank you Weaselboy, I have contacted Intego who agreed it is a false positive which has been rectified in the latest update.
