Please help me remove a virus

Hi there, new to the community here.


I have a Mac running OSX 10.12.4 and I've had this happen 3 times.


Computer lid was closed & should have been asleep.

With the apple logo unlit, half an hour later I hear music playing - a paused video has been unpaused and the following apps were newly opened
+ sublime text
+ iTerm ( terminal )
+ Giphy Screen Capture
+ iPhoto
+ iBooks
Bitdefender virus scan shows nothing.
Malwarebytes shows 3 things of issue:

A friend recently linked me to the Dimnie threat report ( ) and this sounds similar to what I've seen. ( I'm not Russian, but I do have a Github account and was contacted by recruiters over the past few months )
I'd like to have whatever is on my computer tracked down and removed and then I need a better defense system. What should I do?
