Mod Edit:Moved to Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs ~~boopme


Hello Everyone,

I hope this is the right place to post this. It's a security issue with my macbook pro which is running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

When I startup my mac, my terminal starts on opening, starting yesterday whenever I startup terminal opens and runs an automated script which just lists the current version of java that is running on the machine. Even wierder, if I am connected to the internet the root user on terminal will become carlies-iphone-MyName-MacBook-Pro:- myname$

Needless to say I do not know who Carlie is .

I have downloaded Kapersky and Dr.Web Light both which found one thing which was promptly deleted, though the script and the user issue still occurs. I have also disabled java on safari and have taken that computer off the internet until a solution presents itself.

This is the script that runs:-

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Commands/java ; exit; carlies-iphone:- myname$ /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Commands/java ; exit;

After which the process runs. I found in the list of login items that this java script had been set to run on startup for all users.

DrWebLight found this: Program.ConduitToolbar.1 and Kapersky found a rar of gimp (painting program) to be a Trojan-Dropper.Win32.ZAccess.gh

I disabled java and removed the script from the startup items after restarting the computer the script did not run, but after restarting the computer with the internet on this appeared when I opened the terminal:-

myname$ carlies-iphone 9 on console

Any ideas on whats going on or how to stop it? Or is any more information needed?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Kind regards,

Chris

Thank you for moving my post.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to get any advice here or on any other sites. I think I will pay apple to take it away and wipe it to be on the safe side. Feels like losing though :P
