Heads up to Mac users

Just a headsup for those of you who use Macs (Tiger & Leopard).

http://www.securemac.com/applescript...ojan-horse.php

This uses a known Mac vulnerability.

No reason to be alarmed, but you should be aware of this and be careful what you DL (or more particularly where you DL from).

Thanks for the heads-up, Gary. The Washington Post article has an elegant 'cure' for the vulnerability.

You're welcome lurch.

I didn't specifically mention the Washington Post cure just in case Apple produced an official fix which might not sit well with the modification.
