Well this not generating any confidence. This piece of malware has been the topic of active discussion over the last few days all over the Internet and you guys don't have a sample yet?

Yes, we have, but @iphone900 said that we don't detect them, so we need exactly that sample to analyze it (we don't have all files all over the world).

It's likely not very widespread. The news sites make a big deal out of every piece of Mac malware so more news coverage doesn't really mean it's widespread.

This question: Does avast detect this malware: http://www.macrumors.com/2011/05/25/new-macdefender-variant-installs-without-admin-password-requirement/ ?
Sorry my english is poor

Anyone know how to uninstall the avast Beta? I deleted the .app file from application folder and that didn't remove avast from menu bar.

I admit the uninstall is not yet too friendly. Right now the uninstall option is only in the menu of the main GUI app.

Unfortunately that's exactly what you have moved to Trash. So the easiest way for you is to restore it from Trash (if not yet emptied) or perform install again, then run the app and choose Uninstall from its menu.

Regards,
Mity

Hallo,
uninstall is available in the menubar (as written explicitly in the release notes). You can install the application again OR put the app from trashcan back to /Applications, and to the proper uninstall action.

Hallo,
at the moment we don't publish this product on AppleStore, the application should be downloaded from the link pointing to our site (because of beta refreshing).
