Can anyone please give me advice on how to remove mal/obfjs-j by Mcafee from Mac?

btw, it was detected by Sopho not Mcafee.

Re: how to remove mal/obfjs-j

Have you asked Sophos in that case?   I see they have a page on that particular infection with removal instructions and they also ask that samples be submitted to them.

Every antivirus maker gives different titles to malware so I have no idea what McAfee calls it.  Best to submit a sample:  http://www.mcafee.com/us/threat-center/resources/how-to-submit-sample.aspx

Hi thank you for the link. However, it is just for pc.  I don't know how to upload a sample. Sopho detected it after I opened an email.

Then I have no idea.  As you're using Sophos products best ask on their forums: http://community.sophos.com/

Or there's a MAC one here: http://openforum.sophos.com/t5/Sophos-Anti-Virus-for-Mac-Home/bd-p/FTT_MAC_MAGNET

Good luck.   There's alwaus the possibility that it's a false alarm.
