Unable to remove threat
« on: April 24, 2024, 06:37:22 AM »
Hi everyone,

I ran a scan on my Mac and found originally one threat, but running a second scan, a second one showed up: MacOS:Adload-CS (Trj) with the infected file being XProtect.yara.I read this was an issue with MacOS in 2021 and have kept my software updated

The problem is that when I click to solve the threat, Avast is unable to remove it. I am out of options on what to do, so are there any options that anyone knows?

Thanks in advance!

I have the same problem. Is it due to incorrect virus definition? I saw the following webpage and I do not know if they are related.

Was looking for an answer - but saw that I'm not the only one with this problem.

I re-scan my computer this morning. Avast shows no threats found. I guess they fixed the problem.

The same thing just happened to me while doing a deep scan.  Same message..MacOS:Adload-CS (Trj) with the infected file being XProtect.yara.  I keep trying to resolve it, but it's not working.  Is it anything I should be deeply concerned about and does anyone know how to fix the problem?  I'm brand new here tonight so I'm hoping that I am asking my question correctly.  Thank you for any info anyone might be able to provide!

Hi, I can confirm this was a false positive detection. It was fixed yesterday (Apr/24/2024). If you're still seeing this detection today, please check for updates (Menu - Preferences, then click Update now) and then run a new scan.
