    Hello
    I would really need some help on this issue. Today I got a message from the Eset Cybersecurity that my computer contains the html scrinject.b.gen virus. I put in quarantine, deleted the file through eset and scanning my mac in the moment. I would like to ask you if I should delete the file from the quarantine or what should I do with it??? This is my first experience with something like this on a mac.
    Thanks for your response in advance.

    It's Windows malware.

    Mac Virus/Malware Info by GGJstudios
    There are currently no viruses for Mac OS X in public circulation, only a handful of trojans and other malware, which have to be installed manually via entering the administrator password.
    The only anti-virus you need to protect your Mac is education and common sense.

    And one thread per issue is enough.

    As it is for Windows, it can't harm Mac OS X.
    Please read the FAQ I linked to.

    As already stated, it can't affect Mac OS X.

    I know, read the thread wrong at first. But as I said I'm on Windows at the moment... plus these are being distributed via ad's on MacRumors (adbrites problem not MR though).
    Not good for reputation.
