    According to this thread, it could be MacDefender malware. Which is plausible, considering you have an anti-virus program on your Mac already. However the best anti-virus software for your Mac is the grey matter between your ears.

    It's not a virus. It's a trojan known by many names, beginning with MacDefender. You don't need any antivirus software to protect Mac OS X from malware. No viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any, since it was released 10 years ago. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some basic education, common sense and care in what software you install:
    The first section of that link deals specifically with the MacDefender/MacSecurity/MacProtector/MacGuard issue, which is not a virus. I encourage you to read it.
