Lauren Posted 6 years ago. They could be corrupted. I would contact the people who created the files. Below are some warning signs of danger.

Do not trust an alert from any website to update Flash , or your browser, or any other software. A genuine alert that Flash is outdated and blocked is shown on this support page. Follow the instructions on the support page in that case. Otherwise, assume that the alert is fake and someone is trying to scam you into installing malware. If you see such alerts on more than one website, ask for instructions. Any ad, on any site, that includes a direct link to a download should be ignored.
All "YouTube downloaders" are in this category, though not all are necessarily malicious. Some reputable websites did legitimately warn visitors who were infected with the "DNSChanger" malware. That exception to this rule no longer applies. Delete any such file without opening it.
Even if you don't get the alert, you should still delete any file that isn't what you expected it to be. I don't say that leaving the safe harbor just once will necessarily result in disaster, but making a habit of it will weaken your defenses against malware attack.
Merely loading a page with malicious Java content could be harmful. Fortunately, client-side Java on the Web is obsolete and mostly extinct. Only a few outmoded sites still use it. Try to hasten the process of extinction by avoiding those sites, if you have a choice. Forget about playing games or other non-essential uses of Java. Java is not included in OS X Discrete Java installers are distributed by Apple and by Oracle the developer of Java.
Another perennial weak point is Adobe Flash Player. Like Java, Flash is in well-deserved decline, but Flash content is still much more widespread than Java content on the Web. If you choose to install the Flash plugin, you can reduce your exposure to Flash by checking the box marked.

I've tested those extensions and found them safe, but you should always do your own research before deciding whether to trust any third-party software. The rest of this comment concerns what you should not do to protect yourself. Never install any AV or "Internet security" products for the Mac if you have a choice, as they are all worse than useless. If you are required by a mistaken institutional policy to install some kind of AV, pick one of the free apps in the Mac App Store—nothing else.
This technique is a proven failure , as a major AV software vendor has admitted. Most attacks are "zero-day"—that is, previously unknown. Recognition-based AV does not defend against such attacks , and the enterprise IT industry is coming to the realization that traditional AV software is worthless.
Malware is downloaded from the network; it doesn't materialize from nowhere. In order to meet that nonexistent threat, commercial AV software modifies or duplicates low-level functions of the operating system, which is a waste of resources and a common cause of instability, bugs, and poor performance. That fact pertains to all AV software there will ever be, no matter what else changes. A free AV product from the Mac App Store is harmless as long you don't let it delete or move any files. Ignore any warnings it may give you about "heuristics" or "phishing. It's useful, if at all, only for detecting Windows malware, and even for that use it's not really effective, because new Windows malware is emerging much faster than OS X malware.
Windows malware can't harm you directly unless, of course, you use Windows. Just don't pass it on to anyone else. A malicious attachment in email is usually easy to recognize by the name alone. An actual example:. You don't need software to tell you that's a Windows trojan. Software may be able to tell you which trojan it is, but who cares? In practice, there's no reason to use recognition software unless an organizational policy requires it. Windows malware is so widespread that you should assume it's in every email attachment until proven otherwise.
Nevertheless, a free AV product from the App Store may serve a purpose if it satisfies an ill-informed network administrator who says you must have some kind of AV application. An App Store product won't modify the operating system; in fact, it won't do anything unless you run it. It seems to be a common belief that the built-in Application Firewall acts as a barrier to infection, or prevents malware from functioning. It does neither. It blocks inbound connections to certain network services you're running, such as file sharing. It's disabled by default and you should leave it that way if you're behind a router on a private home or office network.
Activate it only when you're on an untrusted network, for instance a public Wi-Fi hotspot, where you don't want to provide services. Disable any services you don't use in the Sharing preference pane. All are disabled by default. As a Mac user, you don't have to live in fear that your computer may be infected every time you install software, read email, or visit a web page. But neither can you assume that you will always be safe from exploitation, no matter what you do.
Navigating the Internet is like walking the streets of a big city. It can be as safe or as dangerous as you choose to make it. The greatest harm done by AV software is precisely its selling point: it makes people feel safe. They may then feel safe enough to take risks from which the software doesn't protect them.
Nothing can lessen the need for safe computing practices. I have followed your instructions and will report back here if the popup malware shows up again. Hopefully it has been permanently removed this time. Sep 30, AM. Oct 6, AM.
