I've got this program running on my computer,
/var/root/Library/Application Support/.SectionChannel.dp/SectionChanneldd, which Norton has identified as the malware OSX.Malcol. However, Norton has been thoroughly unhelpful in doing anything about it. I've tried deleting the file as well as sending a
SIGKILL to the running process. However, it keeps restarting.
Digging further via Activity Monitor, I discovered that the parent process is
launchd. How can I figure out what is causing
launchd to execute this program and stop it? Resetting my computer does not fix the issue.
launchctl list | grep Section shows
5727 -9 com.help.SectionChanneld - 0 com.SectionChannel.system
launchctl dumpstate and searched for all of the .plist files associated with the malware. I deleted those files, restarted my computer, and now everything appears to be fine. However, is this sufficient?
