    This looks like the cause . . .

    Your MScanMeteoPro . . .

     

    /Users/kevinauyong/Library/Application Support/.MScanMeteoPro.tmp

     

    If you don't need it, I'd uninstall or delete it.  Check with their site.

    Ah . . . missed that.  It's invisible!  See the period right before the name of the file?

     

    For right now,

    Can you find any other MScan Meteo files? 

     

    Use the search method, OK.

    Click on the desktop, then press the Command key along with the letter " f " key.

    In the resulting pane, type in Mscan Meteo Pro.

     

    Is that thing even Mac compatible ?

    Hi ~Bee

    invisible tmp file in ~/Library/Application Support/ sounds like Flashback

    About Flashback malware

     

    running software update should find the java update which ought to remove it & notify the user, after which change all passwords & check online accounts etc

    I don't suppose it's a windows thing - you might try the manual removal detailed at http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/trojan-downloader_osx_flashback_i.shtml depending on your skill/confidence. They have a removal app there too.

     

    take it a step at a time - begin with defaults read /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/Info LSEnvironment & see what you find out.

    http://www.securelist.com/en/analysis/204792227/The_anatomy_of_Flashfake_Part_1

    shows "...Another auxiliary component will be installed to the user folder $HOME/Library/Application Support/ under a random name which starts with a dot and has a .tmp extension."

     

    so likely you'll find that defaults read ~/.MacOSX/environment DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES gives a result

    Thanks so much.  It's been too long since I last used 10.6.8.
