Threat identified by Bitdefender Antivirus (Mac)


#1

My Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac has recently been alerting me to a threat from /Applications/Zcoin-qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Zcoin-QT. It says the nature of the threat is Gen:Variant.Application.MAC.Miner.6.

Has anyone else seen an alert like this? Is this something to be concerned about?

If you got the files from our GitHub and even checked the integrity of the files with the means provided, there’s nothing to be worried about.

The wallet contains an inbuilt miner and as some botnet malware includes miners too, the AV shows an alert.
