  1. Hi - I would appreciate help. My mac - El Capitan - seems to be infected with the Flashback trojan. Malwarebytes Free (with updated definitions) does NOT detect. But HouseCall does - sort of. It runs, then seems to stall. If I click Stop, it then shows me a Click "Fix now" page, with OSX_Flashbck_A listed multiple times. But if I click the Fix now button, nothing happens. I believe I am truly infected - I stupidly allowed a Flash updater that I thought was validly from Adobe. It popped up when I was on some web page a week or two ago. I believe I was using Firefox (up to date), since that is my default browser (although it is slightly possible I was using Safari). Since then, I have scanned several times with Malwarebytes, and thought all was good, until I ran this HouseCall scan. What evil is this trojan doing to my computer? And how do I get rid of it? Also, my latest Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner backups must also be infected - what do I do about that? My OSX was up to date till yesterday; now there is an update I haven't installed yet. Thank you!
