I have enabled hidden files, ran
netstat to observe active connections, and I am running Clamxav. Anybody know any other tricks or ideas to find anything hiding? This is a client's machine. It ppears to be fine. Just want to know if anything else I could try.
Look in the Activity Monitor app, probably in /Applications/Utilities/. Or use top in the Terminal. But if things appear fine, what are you looking for?
OS X uses
There are places where you can look for suspicious files. Applications install valid services. Malware may have installed a malicious agent or service.
Look for unusual files in these folders, especially
~/Library/LaunchAgents User-provided agents /Library/LaunchAgents Administrator-provided agents /Library/LaunchDaemons Administrator-provided system-wide daemons /System/Library/LaunchAgents OS X per-user agents /System/Library/LaunchDaemons OS X system-wide daemons
The older, legacy method before
$ crontab -l crontab: no crontab for user $ sudo su # crontab -l crontab: no crontab for root # exit
