I am writing this post to gain further insight on some malware found on my MacBook Pro. Recently, while running a scan using Bitdefender, it turned up a Trojan called Trojan.JS.Agent.JMG. Around the same time, I found the following items while running a Malwarebytes scan:

Do any of the listed programs picked up by Bitdefender and Malwarebytes possess the ability to harvest data from my MacBook Pro? If not, what other kinds of harm are such programs capable of causing my laptop?

To Whom It May Concern,

I found the malware listed in my prior post on my Mac Book using AVG Antivirus and Malwarebytes this Spring. After recording the names of the malware in a word document, I removed them from my system. Since then, I updated the software and no longer remember what OS my Mac was using at the time I originally found malware on it.

I cannot download FRST from the Download link featured because Microsoft software is incompatible with my Mac. For the same reason, I do not have a Windows CD/DVD in my possession.

Please let me know If you need further information to proceed. I can be reached by replying to this thread or via email at geyrichj@gmail.com.Thanks!

Greetings.

It appears you are obtaining assistance here so I am closing this topic. Since we don't really troubleshoot Mac computers you are better off getting assistance on the Apple site.
