HT5228 How can I tell if my  computer has been infected with the Trojan?

How can I tell if my computer has been infected with this latest Trojan (or with any Trojan)?  I did install the latest update to Java when I was told by my iMac that new software was available for my computer, which was just 2 or 3 days ago (first week of April).  Now it is being said that there was a Java Trojan.
Many thanks for any replies!

Log out and log back in, if you haven’t done so recently. Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
☞ If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the page that opens.
Step 1
Copy or drag — do not type — the line below into the Terminal window, then press return:
launchctl getenv DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
Post the lines of output, if any, that appear below what you just entered (the text, please, not a screenshot.)
Step 2
Repeat with this line (triple-click anywhere in it to select the whole line):
find /Applications /System/Library/CoreServices -type d -name *.app -exec defaults read {}/Contents/Info LSEnvironment \; 2> /dev/null | grep DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
The command will take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
If you get no output from either step, you're not infected with any variant of Flashback that I know of.

  • How do I know if my Mac has been infected with the virus

    I recently was asked to download an Adobe Acrobat reader update but before I was made aware that the current virus was contained in a similar request, I downloaded what I assumed to be a legit update.  I currently do not use my mail program on my Mac so am unaware of any spam being distributed from the computer.  How can I identify if my computer has been infected with this Trojan Horse virus?

    You can't. You can take a screen cap of it, but the container doesn't allow access to the individual images used in a SWF or FLV.

  • My computer has been infected with a Trojan Horse.  It has completely taken over my Mac email account and was sending out malicious email to everyone in my address book.  At the same time it infected my iPhone---I am no longer able to receive or send emai

    My computer has been infected by a Trojan Horse.  It has taken over my Mac email account and began sending out malicious emails to everyone in my address book.  I cleared out my MAC address book and began using my AOL email account. It took a few days and then my AOL email account was infected and has now been send out malicious email to all my contacts for over a month.  It has also infected my iPhone--I am no longer able to send or receive emails on my iPhone.  Also, once the Trojan Horse began using my AOL email it completely blocked me from using my MAC account by sending never ending popups asking for my email password to access my MAC email account, but it never accepts my pass word.  The TH has also slowed down everything on my computer.  It's like I am working on an old PC with dial up connection instead of the high speed digital connection that I have.  The little color wheel spins constantly as I wait for sometimes over a minute for a page to pull up.  If it pulls up at all.  I have tried to use the 2 disks that came with my computer to completely remove everything on my computer and then reinstall all the programs, but I am not allowed to sweep my computer clean.  I thought maybe my disks that came with my computer were defective so I called Apple and they sent me 2 new disks.  I am not able able to clear my computer with the 2 new disks either.  I have done this before successfully so it's not something new to me.  I do remember when I believe my computer became infected:  I had googled an unusual sewing term, and I was opening what appeared to be legitimate sites, when all of a sudden a pop up appeared that said that my computer had been infected.  I immediately shut my computer off, but it was too late.  I downloaded a virus program for Mac, and it has never found a virus or problem at all.  I think it is part of this Trojan Horse, but I am unable to delete it from my computer.  It refuses to uninstall.  The Mac Trojan Horse is real and it is terrible.  If anyone has any suggestions for me I would be very appreciative,

    Install ClamXav and run a scan with that. It should pick up any trojans.

  • In Mail, how can I tell if an email has been read by the recipient?

    There used to be a way in msn to get a message when an email was read. Is there a way to do the same in Mail?

    Not really.

  • PLEASE HELP! How can I tell if my Imac has been hacked?

    PLEASE HELP! How can I tell if my Imac has been hacked? I see a few people have asked this question but the responses tended to be advice on what to do once you've been hacked, not what can done to find out if you have been hacked. I have a late 2012 model imac. My sharing was off and remote logging was off. I use an external router that send wireless to about 4 consoles in the flat. I don't think I have any firewalls up (now looking like a mistake). I think I'm possibly being hacked  due to abnormal behaviour and most recently my camera was turned off all day (no LED) then I went to record something on Photo Booth, the application popped up displaying an image of me getting dressed (nightmare!) which happened hours earlier when the camera was off. This image quickly then disappeared and the camera began working normally. Very strange and alarming. Please help me. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    1. This procedure is a diagnostic test. It changes nothing, for better or worse, and therefore will not, in itself, solve the problem. But with the aid of the test results, the solution may take a few minutes, instead of hours or days.
    Don't be put off merely by the seeming complexity of these instructions. The process is much less complicated than the description. You do harder tasks with the computer all the time.
    2. If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data before doing anything else. The backup is necessary on general principle, not because of anything in the test procedure. Backup is always a must, and when you're having any kind of trouble with the computer, you may be at higher than usual risk of losing data, whether you follow these instructions or not.
    There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    3. Below are instructions to run a UNIX shell script, a type of program. All it does is to collect information about the state of the computer. That information goes nowhere unless you choose to share it. However, you should be cautious about running any kind of program (not just a shell script) at the behest of a stranger. If you have doubts, search this site for other discussions in which this procedure has been followed without any report of ill effects. If you can't satisfy yourself that the instructions are safe, don't follow them. Ask for other options.
    Here's a summary of what you need to do, if you choose to proceed:
    Copy a line of text in this window to the Clipboard.
    Paste into the window of another application.
    Wait for the test to run. It usually takes a few minutes.
    Paste the results, which will have been copied automatically, back into a reply on this page.
    The sequence is: copy, paste, wait, paste again. You don't need to copy a second time. Details follow.
    4. You may have started the computer in "safe" mode. Preferably, these steps should be taken in “normal” mode, under the conditions in which the problem is reproduced. If the system is now in safe mode and works well enough in normal mode to run the test, restart as usual. If you can only test in safe mode, do that.
    5. If you have more than one user, and the one affected by the problem is not an administrator, then please run the test twice: once while logged in as the affected user, and once as an administrator. The results may be different. The user that is created automatically on a new computer when you start it for the first time is an administrator. If you can't log in as an administrator, test as the affected user. Most personal Macs have only one user, and in that case this section doesn’t apply. Don't log in as root.
    6. The script is a single long line, all of which must be selected. You can accomplish this easily by triple-clicking anywhere in the line. The whole line will highlight, though you may not see all of it in the browser window, and you can then copy it. If you try to select the line by dragging across the part you can see, you won't get all of it.

    exec bash
    and press return. Then paste the script again.
    9. If you're logged in as an administrator, you'll be prompted for your login password. Nothing will be displayed when you type it. You will not see the usual dots in place of typed characters. Make sure caps lock is off. Type carefully and then press return. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you make three failed attempts to enter the password, the test will run anyway, but it will produce less information. In most cases, the difference is not important. If you don't know the password, or if you prefer not to enter it, press the key combination control-C or just press return three times at the password prompt. Again, the script will still run.
    If you're not logged in as an administrator, you won't be prompted for a password. The test will still run. It just won't do anything that requires administrator privileges.
    10. The test may take a few minutes to run, depending on how many files you have and the speed of the computer. A computer that's abnormally slow may take longer to run the test. While it's running, there will be nothing in the Terminal window and no indication of progress. Wait for the line
    [Process completed]
    to appear. If you don't see it within half an hour or so, the test probably won't complete in a reasonable time. In that case, close the Terminal window and report the results. No harm will be done.
    11. When the test is complete, quit Terminal. The results will have been copied to the Clipboard automatically. They are not shown in the Terminal window. Please don't copy anything from there. All you have to do is start a reply to this comment and then paste by pressing command-V again.
    At the top of the results, there will be a line that begins with the words "Start Time." If you don't see that, but instead see a mass of gibberish, you didn't wait for the "Process completed" message to appear in the Terminal window. Please wait for it and try again.
    If any private information, such as your name or email address, appears in the results, anonymize it before posting. Usually that won't be necessary.
    12. When you post the results, you might see the message, "You have included content in your post that is not permitted." It means that the forum software has misidentified something in the post as a violation of the rules. If that happens, please post the test results on Pastebin, then post a link here to the page you created.
    Note: This is a public forum, and others may give you advice based on the results of the test. They speak only for themselves, and I don't necessarily agree with them.

  • How can I count  time that a computer has been connectted with the internet

    I want to count the time which a computer has been connectted with the internet?
    I had already tried several times,
    one is socket,
    second is Runtime.exec("ping -n 1"+ip)
    I don't think they are better;
    do you have another idea?

    The internet is a conceptual entity not a physical entity so you are never connected to it.
    As a conceptual entity the internet is represented by a cloud of computing devices (computers, gateways, routers, etc.)
    Your computer connects to a another computer by being routed through various devices and then finally connecting to that remote computer.
    Depending on various thing you can measure the time that you can connect to other devices by either pinging a common IP in the internet (such as or by pinging the router that that represents the entry point for your cloud (such as the router/gateway of your ISP.)
    If you are concerned about a particular connection, such a specific remote computer, then using a socket and sending a 'keep-alive' message and recieving the response is the best way to track that.

  • How can you tell your iPhone 5s has been unlocked?

    Is there anyway to tell from the Settings menu on the iPhone or from a menu in iTunes that the phone has been unlocked. My wireless carrier has allowed me to unlock my phone because I will be spending an extended period of time in another country. Leaving in a few weeks. They have sent some kind of notification and bit of software to the Apple server. According to the instructions, this unlock instruction will be loaded on my phone next time I sync on iTunes.  But I won't be able to tell if the unlocking has been successful until I arrive in this other country and put another SIM card in the phone. So my question: is there a menu on the iPhone or in iTunes that provides any indication that the phone has been successfully unlocked?

    This is how the process works ,needs following to the letter
    and no there is no indication in settings since locking is a Carrier issue

  • How can I open a project that has been created with Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration software, on my trial version of Premier Pro CC?

    I'm working with a colleague who is using Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration software on his PC version of Premier Pro CC. I am using a mac and have a trial version of Premier Pro CC. When I try to open a project file that he has sent me I get an error message-
    "Missing renderer: This project was last used with Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA), which is either not available or not certified on this system. Mercury Playback Engine Software Only will be used."
    When I click OK and locate the files I get a message saying "File format not supported".
    Can anyone tell me what to do so that we can share project files?
    Many thanks,

    Shouldn't really be the MPE at fault here ... what is the codec of the footage/sequence/project?
    Second, can you create a new project in PrPro, then in the media browser, import that sequence from the other project?

  • How can I tell if my HD has been encrypted by a third party?

    I had someone call saying they were from Yahoo, and that one of my email addresses was sending out scam messages.they also showed me where my event log was showing several errors and where a lot of Microsoft systems were Stopped.I just found out from  Bob Headrick, in a reply to a question I had, that this is quite normal.I took his advice and installed another virus scanner program , everything checked out good.I now am wondering, since they may have been scamers, and I let them remotely into my PC. If they have encrypted my Hard drive.Is there some way I can check this? I will be checking with my bank to get a refund and I am afraid if my HD is encypted, they might be able to shut me down??? Any help would be apreciated,Thank you in advance.Biomac

    Hi, You can never to certain that the "scammer" didn't plant malware or a virus into your PC.  These types of companies have been around and claim to be representing major PC companies and ISP services and they are very careful not to inform you of the real company name. Generally they just log in, run some software and then claim to have fixed a problem (which never really existed). If you are uneasy about what happened then I would recommend that you do a complete HP recovery using the external recovery media.  Backup your data before doing the recovery.  Be sure to close down any remote log in capabilites and IDs if created. Bottom line: If some calls saying that your PC has a virus then hang up. These Norton Tools are very good at discovering and repairing malware and virus issues.

  • How can I tell if my iPhone has been hacked?

    First off, I have an iPhone 5s with the most recent software.
    Today, out of the blue, my phone started showing the cellular provider as 'Maritime' instead of AT&T. I Googled around and saw some sort of joint venture thing that AT&T has with providing cell service to ships ( but I'm not sure why all the sudden this would start showing up as my carrier. I went through the usual things to do and restarting my phone seemed to have changed it back to AT&T. I would rather be safe than sorry; I wanna know if this is possibly some sort of residue from a hack.

    I didn't think there was a way for someone to remotely change something like that but just wanted to put it out there.
    I guess I could have been near a passengar ship, being that I live in Long Beach, CA (tons of cruise ships and international ships in the port of LB) but it was showing 'Maritime' for at least 4 hours. Maybe they were just randomly parked somewhere.
    I called AT&T and they just had me reset my carrier settings (i had already restarted my phone so it did nothing). The only suggestion as to what caused it was that AT&T may have thought my phone was somewhere else. Don't know why that would show another carrier. (which is what made me think it could have been hacked or something simialr). I'm just gonna assume it had something to do with the AT&T's network and all the carriers they piggyback onto their towers.
    Thanks for the response!
