Apple's first malware pandemic?


Buy It

Try It

Complacency and smugness suddenly turn to panic. The Developers Workshop article 'Trojans for Nothing' pointed out how easy the 'iWorkServices' exploit was - and sure enough (and just as Brian Krebs predicted) it's spreading.

Intego Security Alert 26 January

A nearly identical trojan has been found at the torrent sites. The social engineering tack's the same: offer something for nothing. In this case a cracked version of Adobe CS. The attack is the same: embed a trojan inside the Apple installer package, edit a few plain text files, and that's it.

It can't be easier - and considering the circumstances these Maccie users can't be stupider.

iTrojan.clix

iTrojan.clix is a new CLIX command file available for immediate download that takes care of this most recent exploit.

The ordinary CLIX downloads have also been augmented with this command file.
