I thought it was the Adobe software update notifying me automatically, as I recall it sometimes does. But I did a search for the Preferences. This worries me. Can you open the console and see anything out of the ordinary? It seems like this file malware might behave differently than when I encountered it a few weeks ago. I was infected by this virus yesterday. Today my mac was useless. My desktop icons were gone and most menu names were replaced by number sequences.

I discovered the preferences. At this point the whole system became useless.
I shut down and on re-start just got a blue screen. Is it possible that the virus would be on that drive or in files on that drive that i want to recover? However, certain files could be in your Time Machine backup.
Problems with Safari & Software Update in OSX 10.5.8
My Time Machine backups were compromised starting with the first backup after installing the malware. The delete these and go back a back-up version predating the virus download, should be OK provided you also have your anti-virus running you do have now, right? Automatic updates do pop up in Windows 7, so some users might be talking about that — those constant updates on my work PC are one reason why I clicked through the mac installer without reading anything.
There was a Flash update today for me as well. It was genuine. The installer is stiull on my computer and the pref file is not present. I also believe that the virus has requires you to click to install it. The flash update was different. I could also see that my file was downloaded from Adobe. I believe this malware hosed my system yesterday. I thought this was odd, and then I heard about this malware. Sure enough, I had the offending dylib in my preferences directory. After putting the dylib in my trash, I tried to open Activity Monitor to look for any suspicious processes, but it would open and immediately close—no errors or anything.
Mac OS X 10.5.8 Update
After a bit of troubleshooting, I simply wiped my system and restored from a clean Time Machine backup. I recall seeing a strange file when I was trying to solve why I can no longer run videos on a number of sites, including yahoo, hulu and cnbc. Now when I try to load the videos, I get a box that says Adobe Flash wants to more room to store stuff on your computer- allow, deny. And how likely is it that my video download problem and this malware are related? I starts and than ends in a blue screen no jokes please, i Thought them up myself , does anybody know how to fix this…. I have Virus Barrier 6 and my virus definition updates are… up to date.
Does Intego give it a different name? I manage a Mac OS We are warning everyone to ignore it, but this is a serious threat for those of us in K12 education with Mac labs. That way we can collect more samples, and keep ahead of the malware creators. Hello Intego. Then, in the last couple of weeks, I opened Skype and saw two names of contacts that I neither invited nor accepted into my Skype world.
I also was creating several presentations and using Google images quite a bit and have noticed changes on my display. Pop-up screen savers that I had not seen prior. One day recently, I contacted a research service. Turns out the company that carried a Dallas address was really based in India. Have an email from the firm which your VirusBarrier X6 has red-flagged.

- The problem?
Spoke with a project partner who I have exchanged files with over the last couple of weeks. She has used a mac for 30 years and now notices potential issues on her system and recommended that I download your software. Then today, noticed your notice on flash and recalled receiving some kind of upgrade request. As a new mac user, I presumed it was necessary for the images I was downloading.
BTW, one contact name was in arabic. The second was a business in Maryland. My previous Flash Player was version I just upgraded to I'm not sure why the System Preference pane might not be showing up - Flash Player claims it's compatible with Thanks; the Flash Player plugin is there, FP preference pane still missing.

A restart likely will fix it. The comments about now-operating but aging PPC systems is applicable not only to the Flash Player, but also to other products such as Skype and even Firefox, both of which induce you to "upgrade" only to find out that the system requirements aren't met Skype told me after it had installed the new version, after which I had to find the old version and re-install. Downloaded the update for Flash yesterday - today, can't view most things that require Flash.
