What is a PYC file?

Compiled source code written in the Python programming language.


PYC files may be targeted and infected by various types of malware, including the Python.Pytroj virus, to interleave harmful code into the binaries of Python applications that reference the infected PYC files. To protect against PYC files that have been potentially infected by a virus, install an antivirus program on your computer that detects viruses like the Python.Pytroj virus.
