Macattack

Mac targeted by Trojan? Mmm…it looks as though the Apple ecosphere is joining the ranks of we mere mortals. It’s a shame, but inevitable really. See also here.

 Two pieces of malicious software affecting Apple’s Mac OS X appeared this week: a Trojan horse with the ability to download and install malicious code of an attacker’s choice, and a hacker tool for creating backdoors, according to security vendors. The Trojan — called ‘OSX.RSPlug.D’ by Intego, the Mac security specialist that discovered the threat — is a variant on an older piece of malicious code but with a new installer, Intego said.
