bct files from Safari anyone else?
Macbook using Safari 5.0.3 I am getting bct files from certain sites. Yes the file says bct and no extension. They automatically download into my download folder, they are a blank file and zero in size.
Peeps from these two links are getting them also... they don't know if they are related to ads or the last Safari update. EDIT: Peeps have got these from earlier versions of Safari also... If you get them or got them and know how to stop it let us know because I don't know what to do at this time to stop it and they don't either.
Apple - Support - Discussions - Is that a virus? ...
Anybody else getting "BCT" file download when viewing ebay items? in Community Help Boards in Community
edit: I also cleaned out my cash, reset the browser etc... running a virus scan so far nothing and also added a ad blocker and still happens...

I'm getting this, too. It's a zero kb document (I also opened it with nano under terminal and there was nothing in it). Any help?

Did you right click and then info to see what that says?
They appear to be related to ads on certain sites.

Is this a bug or exploit in Safari?
I suggest that you switch to a different internet browser if it doesn't stop.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

^ Who knows.. it just started to do on my computer..... I did read that someone stated that they think it has something to do with ads on certain sites...
