Infinitely repeated blocked threat: MacOS: Genio-FM (ADW)
« on: September 07, 2018, 07:33:53 PM »
Hi

Avast keeps moving the same file, Genio-FM, from /System/Library/CoreServices/MRT.app/Contents/MacOS/MRT to The Chest, but it does so over and over again and never stops. What can I do?

Best

This has to be such a coincidence I posted the same thing exectally 5 minutes after you. I have the exact same "problem". Does this mean it's a false alarm?

EDIT: To help you with the pop-ups: You can disable them in preferences -> popups -> and change alerts to "OFF"

Yeah, I also experienced the same thing. Did you find any good solution?
