I am guessing my virus checker is giving a false positive on my Mac antivirus scanner (VIrusBarrier by Intego). I'm attaching a screenshot of the scan results. The report says "OSX/MacOffers.s0" is the malware. Is it safe to trust (an option in my scanner).

    My Mac is detecting malware and I think it is coming from Anki because the message only pops up when using the application. Has this ever happened before and what is the best way to resolve this issue? Should I update Anki or tell my Mac that there is no malware?

    Anki does not have a program called 'update', so that popup appears to be caused by some other program running on your machine.
