Sophos Anti Virus-First threat found in 5+ years
Apr 29, 2013

I've had Sophos Anti-Virus installed on my Macs for years, and today Sophos notified me of a virus threat.  First time ever and I've used the program for well over 5 years.

Sophos identified 2 suspicious emails with subject lines in the vein of:  "Your payment transfer 593865 was rejected".

The 2 emails showed virus threats identified as 1) Troj/Zbot-ETG   & 2)  Mal/Generic-S

This was on my laptop; after Scanning with Sophos the threats were successfully removed.

Searching: Troj/Zbot-ETG leads me to belive it is a PC virus, not a Mac.

I'm posting this to hear some of your comments/thoughts.

Cheers!
