Personally I have never really been a fan of CleanMyMac et al, or the whole AV industry to begin with. Fact is they’re always late to the party. Having a virusscanner can feel like a great way of being secure, but it all starts with not being a fool when you run random pieces of software from dubious sources.

So basically don’t watch free porn and you’ll be fine.

@Zino, @TNL Did they ever catch anything, though? And do you recall how you got the infection?

Yeah, greatly generalising, that’s basically it. Or do so on a (virtual) machine you don’t use for your banking etc ;)

Yes Sophos did caught some and put them in quarantine.
You can test your antivirus using this fake virus file and see for yourself if your antivirus do the work or not.
