An Infected File Attempted To Run On My Mac Device (Trojan.GenericKD.63518532). Any Advice?
I'm running Bitdefender Antivirus on a Mac, and got this notification yesterday:
"An infected file attempted to run on your device. Threat name: Trojan.GenericKD.63518532 [Path] We deleted the file to prevent malicious commands from being executed on your device."
The path indicates that this was an attachment to an email in my spam folder--an email I'd received several weeks ago. But I never opened the email or the attachment. So: how could the malicious attachment "attempt to run" if I never interacted with it? And why did this suddenly happen weeks after the email was received?
I'm also curious about "Trojan.GenericKD.63518532": does it even infect Macs?
