macOS Infected with JS:ScriptSH-inf [Trj]
« on: October 06, 2017, 03:11:50 PM »
Looking for some help.  Every day I get an infection notification on my MacBook Pro (running macOS Seirra and Avast Free) for JS:ScriptSH-inf [Trj].
Any suggestions for permanently removing this infection.

There's two things you can do. Either run a few anti-malware programs to see if they'd find something or reinstall the OS.

Do you have another AV installed ?... ClamAV

I have a VM running Windows with Microsoft Security Essentials, but this has been the case for years with no issues.  No other AV software on my mac.

your screenshot say  clamxav.app  https://www.clamxav.com/

So if you have leftovers after previous installed AV then you need to remove

Or third and best option. Get info before you do anything stupid   ;)

Found the old Clamxav program, which wasn't running (no reference found in Activity Monitor), and deleted it.  Will see if that solves the problem.
Thank you.
