For whoever didn’t hear, there is a Macintosh trojan in-the-wild being dropped, infecting mac users.
Yes, it is being done by a regular online gang – it is not yet another proof of concept. The same gang infects Windows machines as well, just that now they also target macs.
This means one thing: Apple’s day has finally come and Apple users are going to get hit hard. All those unpatched vulnerabilities from years past are going to bite them in the behind.
I can sum it up in one sentence: OS X is the new Windows 98. Investing in security ONLY as a last resort losses money, but everyone has to learn it for themselves.
Ouch. No such thing as e-crime, eh?
