Mac virus identification help needed

  RichardW 14:18 21 Mar 2020

Hello all,

I have a Macbook Air running MacOS Sierra 10.12.5 and it has been infected by a virus which has generated a countless number of seemingly random .txt.part files, completely obscuring my desktop. Does anyone know what virus this is? I've tried searching but with no success. Thanks.

I'm not sure if this would work, but I reckon it's worth a try VirusTotal
