First Mac Botnet

Bit of reading for those of you using Macs.

I thought this might be of interest to members here as the infection was contracted by people using P2P to download a copy of CS4 from "questionable" sources.

I'm not supposing for a minute that anyone here would be foolish enough to use a "cracked" copy of PS, I hold you in higher regard than that.

I'm just pointing out the fact that the writers of malicious code seem to be starting to look at Macs a little more, so be careful what you download and where you download it from.
