How can I remove FreeMacKeyLogger?

Recommended Posts

I have discovered, according to Malwarebytes v1.1.3, that I have PUP.FreeMacKeyLogger.

 

I have "removed" it via Malwarebytes and, although not so requested, I have rebooted my machine - and yet the file still reportedly remains each time I run the scanner.

 

How can I remove it?

 

I am running a 27" 2009 i7 quad-core iMac under MacOSX.10.11.2 El Capitan and as far as I am aware I am completely up to date.

 

Neither avira nor AVG anti-virus have reported anything amiss.

 

I do have the Malwarebytes system report and log but will refrain from posting the former unless anyone thinks it will help - it is pretty long and totally incomprehensible to me!

 

The Malwarebytes log follows ...

D'oh!  Apologies, I didn't notice the Mac forum.

 

I have now discovered that I do not have the file ...

 

 

Hi,

This is due to a minor bug in the current version of the app that will, in certain uncommon circumstances, falsely detect a login item. Fortunately, nothing is being removed that shouldn’t be removed, because the login item in question doesn’t actually exist. Simply ignore that, you don’t actually have FreeMacKeylogger installed.

We’re working on a fix for this bug now.
