Should we expand How can I remove malicious spyware, malware, adware, viruses, trojans or rootkits from my PC? to not be limited to just Windows PCs?

It's currently tagged Windows specifically (for example).

I ask because I suspect we're only going to see more questions like these going forward:

  • Not sure… even now, that question is almost too broad. – slhck Dec 31 '14 at 20:00
  • @slhck I see what you're saying, but I remember it was intended to be sort of broad, to counteract the 1,000,000 "too narrow" "how do I remove virus XYZ" questions it was to replace. :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 31 '14 at 20:05
  • Absolutely. I'm just not experienced enough with malware on OS X and Linux to know whether it would require a completely different approach altogether. – slhck Dec 31 '14 at 20:06
  • Hmm, me neither. :) Perhaps de/retag it and put a fat Bounty for an answer more OSX-centric procedure? I'll foot the bounty.. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 31 '14 at 21:48
