Exploit.CVE 2011 0979 gen

I am using Mac Monterey 12.2.3. received a Manual removal requirement from BD into a private file.

"We identified a threat that needs to be manually removed.

Threat name: Exploit.CVE-2011-0979.Gen

Path: /private/var/folders/zz/zyxvpxvq6csfxvn_n00000b400002s/T/com.apple.OfficeImport_5088__682976772_1/E20z-MEL Smith.WJ6UNT.xls"

I have went into the file until file T, which will not allow changing password to progress to next folder. Can anyone assist on this issue?


  • Hello @view and welcome to the Community!

    This is a case for the malware engineers. An exploit is a piece of software, a chunk of data, or a sequence of commands that takes advantage of a bug or vulnerability in an application or a system to cause unintended or unanticipated behavior to occur. Basically, this means that the target of an attack suffers from a design flaw that allows hackers to create the means to access it and use it in their interest.
