.exe files found on my Mac
« on: February 05, 2015, 09:22:07 PM »
Yesterday's scan found a number of infected files on my back-up drive two of them Malware .exe files which surely shouldn't be on a Mac, and yet I can't delete them.  Anybody know why this is?  The rest were adware which may or not be relatively harmless.

Deleting files from a Time Machine backup should be made using the TM Interface.
