No it is a Trojan not a virus, but still malware.  Don't install it.  It goes by a lot of names.

I just noticed that you posted this in the windows software community.  If you are running windows also from a partition, then I would think you would have a windows av program.  I don't know much about those.  I am pretty sure though that a mpkg application is for macs, so the Apple directions should be what you need.  If not, someone with more experience will have to help.
