I found this posted, the story says the virus is a low threat. I think its a somewhat serious threat because most Mac users dont expect it.

Heads Up! I dont want to see anyones machine trashed because of it.

Take care.

Dang, and here I thought the PC problem coming to the Mac was the Intel processor.

That's actually more of a trojan than a virus. For it to infect your computer you have to open the file, then type in your username and password(like you have to do anytime you try to install something on a mac unless you are using it logged in as root...which in itself is a bad idea) before it can infect your computer.

Stuff like this has been around for a long time. When I hear of a virus or worm that will actually infect and cause problems on my Mac without my permission for it to do so I'll get worried. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Well, that is a problem, yes, but at least this bug, virus, trojan, whatever, is something that you and I can do something about.
