iBotnet


Apparently computer viruses are now being developed specifically for the Mac — but as of now, “The program infects only computers whose users downloaded pirated versions of the Mac software iWork.”

This is my favorite part of the article:

‘It is in the interest of software companies like Symantec, who spread the news, and McAfee, which has downplayed the presence of the Trojan, to raise concerns so they can promote their antivirus software packages, he said.

“Yes, it is going to become a bigger problem and, yes, people have to become more aware, but I think that what McAfee and Symantec would like is for the panic to start and for people to start rushing to antivirus software,” which isn’t necessary yet, Etherington said.’
