What is a PYC file?
Complied source code written in the Python programming language.
PYC files contain compiled source code that can be executed on various platforms, including Windows, macOS, and Linux. These 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.
