I've just had this problem. First some basics, I'm running OSX 10.5.8 on my 2007 MacBook, and my Sophos AV updates hourly.
This afternoon as I accessed a web page, AV notified me of a threat in the cache, a threat called 'Mal/Iframe-V'. Naturally I shut that page down, then I clicked my way through the clean-up sequence. When it was done and the threat listing was removed from the Quarantine Manager, there was no pop-up window to tell me what had happened, so I looked at the log, and to my surprise I saw:
"com.sophos.intercheck: 2011-06-04 14:28:40 +0100 Threat: 'Mal/Iframe-V' detected in /[my browser's cache folder]
-- followed by --
com.sophos.intercheck: Access to the file denied"
So my question is, does this mean that AV was unable to deal with this threat? If it didn't access the file, how is it supposed to eliminate it? What else do I have to do to get rid of this?
