Question: Adware installed but not running -- should I be concerned?
I am in a group responsible for several thousand macs, and some of them have Smokyashan.app in their (Standard privs) '~user/Library/Application Support' directory. But there doesn't appear to be any active smokyashan processes. I also have seen a Useaget uninstaller in a user's Applications folder. These users' browsers look fine, with none of the underlines and rollover popups that come from running malware.
It would be a major big hassle to go searching for these adware programs on all of the various computers, and the question is -- do I need to do this? What sort of damage can the files do without Administrator privileges?
