So my hosting company would touch this.

So I did an FTP transfer and downloaded the entire thing to my MAC.

Immediately AVAST alarms went off that I had infected files in the directory I downloaded.

I quickly scanned the isolated directory and found ~250 infected files.....

SO now what?

How Do I select them all and dlete them?

Or do I move them to a folder and delete them
or do I EXPORT them someone to delete them...

I honostely can find the options in this program to act on the findings...

Thanks for you help!

I would not delete all the files. I would search the files for malicious elements and remove those found.

Such elements include long lines of code and obfuscation.
