"Virus Warning! DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

December 14, 2015  |  By Tony Bianco

2015-12-14 07:10:28  |  By Tony Bianco

 |  Version: OS X Rootkit Hunter 0.2

Pros

NONE absolutely no pros

Cons

It triggers a virus warning with Norton Antivirus, you can't quarantine the file and you can't delete the file either. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!

Summary

Download.com used to be a safe place to download files. Not any more. Having a rootkit on your computer means serious trouble where a hacker can log all your keystrokes. I came here looking for something that would detect rootkits on my mac to see if I had any. This app came recommended. I downloaded it and to my surprise it had a virus on it. Surprise! Surprise!

This is what a Mac security tool should be. This is one very slick application even a recent cross-over from you -know-where can use.
