Hello,

I saw that Malwarebytes was involved in the discovery of the new Silver Sparrow malware, but was wondering if Malwarebytes Mac version can detect it?  I couldn't find any references to Silver Sparrow on the Malwarebytes site.

Here is the reference article:

When Malware bytes detects and removes Silver Sparrow is it enough? Or should I format my Mac since its my work computer just to be safe?

Malwarebytes detects and gives you the opportunity to remove all the files that allow it to operate. Since it's only a downloader and has not been observed to install any malware at this time, there is no need to do anything else.
