I fear I may have accidentally downloaded phishing malware from this URL:   httpx://meetone.gg/ (made the URL unclickable)

My Avast Premium app said "Threat secured - We've put sleeve in Quarantine because it was infected with malware: MacOS:Stealer-AB [Trj] and MacOS:Stealer-AE [Trj]."

Here is what happened in detail:
1/ I downloaded the file
2/ I double-clicked on the container
3/ I asked Avast Premium to scan the Meetone App
4/ It gave me the above warning. I believe but am not 100% sure if I ever actually launched the app.
5/ Another window suddenly opened asking me to put in my password "to grant access to system preferences". Smelly af.
6/ Of course I did not touch the window, but I could also not close the window. Tried all sorts of ways.
7/ Then I did a restart, and it was gone.

Then, I researched more and heard I should check out Malwarebytes! I did a first scan with Malwarebytes, but it could not find anything (score of 100).

A/ Now, is there any experience with this specific Stealer-AB?
B/ As I did not enter the password, is there a chance that I am still sort of in the clear? What would be the safest way?

Thanks in advance! If Malwarebytes can help me get rid of this malware, I will instantly sign up for two years!

Hi @Bozer76,

What you downloaded is a Stealer malware disguised as an app called Meetone.App. It tries to steal your data if you enter your system password.
Since you didn't enter the password and restarted, you should be safe after deleting Meetone.App.


Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Marcelo, 

Thanks for your input - that is fantastic to hear because I 100% positively did not enter the password!

What a relief - I will now delete the file of these scamming loosers.

Thanks again 🙏
