Hi, I am trying to check my mac to scan and remove malware. I downloaded and opened an xls. file from Upwork yesterday. I opened it in an old version of Excel (Microsoft Office 2008), then also in Preview. Then, I deleted the file from my downloads folder, then deleted the Microsoft Office program.
I downloaded ClamXav and started scanning with it. I am just scanning through everything that showed up in the source list, but I'm not sure if it will pick up everything (or if it is too much). I've since read about other programs that might be better at this, so I'm looking for help in which one to use and how to make sure it picks up everything. I received an email from Upwork that this file is malicious and I am also curious to find out what it might do. I want to change all of passwords, but trying to wait until after the scanning is done- and the scanning is taking a while.
Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.
