    I just got hacked my yahoo accounts, past two days is one account and today is another.
    I don't know how the trojan in my MAC, I'm using LastPass for web login, sparrow(pirate :( ) for email checking and for a very long time.
    But how could it get my password, it just send email to my mail list some websites. Not changing my PW.
    I checked Login activitied: It was login from Arap and Turkey.
    I immediately changed my PW, but I want to scan my Mac now.
    Please suggest me some app that could do it.
    Thanks a lot!
    Some website like this. It may cause harm. IDK.

    ClamXav can help, but it is more probable, that your password got hacked.

    It's more likely your online PW got hacked than your Mac has a Trojan. Are you current on Software Update? If so, even if you briefly had the trojan it should be gone by now.

    I agree that his PW probably got hacked. I have clamxav but I haven't run it in years. For the most part, OS X antivirus software is a waste of time.

    Not a trojan. You need to change all of your account passwords to something secure and very different from what you had. This is a real person that just brute-forced your password, most likely.
