Dear Geek to Go members,

NOTE: I was unable to run the Old Timer application for I was using a Mac.

 

My Avast has detected a infection on my system

 

OS: Mac OSX Mavericks 10.9.3

 

Infection: JS:Pdfka-ADK[Expl]

 

File: /Users/username/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/plugtmp/plugin-pagespeed.js

 

Process: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox

 

UID: 502

 

Its the first time that the Avast found a malware directly in the Firefox.app

 

I went to the folder in the finder

but found no files of that name. however, when I was closing the browser saw the file appear for a split second before  disappearing.

 

from what I have found its to do with a Java script called Page-Speed, so does it mean a

false positive?

 

 

 

What should I do next?

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. :)

I'm afraid we will be unable to assist you in this part of the forum because primarily it is for Windows based Anti-Malware support as are the specific tools we use.

You could ask in the relevant Operating Systems part of the forum though.
