I have a question regarding PHP Trojans on a Mac. I have downloaded a website's home directory which has been hacked to my local Mac. On this Mac I am running Kaspersky Internet Security which ran a check on the downloaded folder and it indicated that there were 3 PHP trojans (Trojan.PHP.Agent.pg) in this folder.
My understanding is, that the PHP Trojan can only be harmful to a system, if it can be executed. Therefore:
- Can my MacBook interpret the PHP code and actually get harmed?
- If not, is Kaspersky just warning me due to pattern matching? Would it therefore also warn me for Windows Maleware - or is it just one common database and they do not differentiate which operating system one is using?
