Botnets take control of Macs

Did you happen to download that pirated copy of iWork ’09? No? Then why are you spamming me with your ads for viagra and cialis? A couple of malware programs, OSX.Iservice and OSX.Iservice.B, have proven successful in obtaining passwords to take control of seemingly innocent Macs. Welcome to the party. Reportedly its the first serious attempt at creating an Apple-centric botnet and it’s picking up steam. It’s still early but the code appears to be fairly flexible for future modifications. I guess this won’t be the end of virus and malware programs for Macs. In the meantime, stop downloading torrents and just buy legit software already! (link)
