Malwarebytes doesnt detect the trojan on my mac


Recommended Posts

I was doing a daily scan on my mac and using Malwarebytes and then I saw a file named Trojan.SteamStealer.CSGO and for some reason, it just skips the file and makes it like it's not a threat. But it shouldn't do that because it has the name trojan in it. And now I can't seem to find or remove this virus. Any help would be appreciated.

That's not a file. Malwarebytes is showing you the names of the threats it's looking for, not filenames. Since it didn't detect anything, it did not find Trojan.SteamStealer.CSGO, or any of the other threats it was looking for.

As I said, those are the names of things Malwarebytes is looking for, not things it is finding. It will alert you if it finds anything.

Someone calling on the phone and asking for you by name is not malware-related. Junk phone calls pretty normal these days.

Since you aren't finding any malware, then this isn't the right place to be getting advice about your system. Try the Apple Support Community Sierra Forum.

But since my system takes up 89GB, yours would seem to be quite normal and I don't understand what makes you think you have storage problems?

What are these problems you're having? As Al points out, 85 GB for the system is not unusual. My system here is bigger than that.

Hi, I don't know if you need anymore help but if you need, this can help.

The system tab also includes cache files. That are files that are temporarily saved to you're pc/Mac, but is often doesn't delete those automatic.

I recommend a program like omnidisksweeper to locate and delete these cache files. More on how to do that, I found here:

It is not advisable to delete cache files for no reason, as that will temporarily harm the performance of your Mac as it rebuilds those caches. If you repeatedly delete caches, it will repeatedly cause performance issues.

Further, using OmniDiskSweeper to find things taking up a lot of space and then deleting them can be highly dangerous if you don't know exactly what you're looking at. Never delete anything from your Mac if you aren't 100% certain you know what it is, and that deleting it is okay.
