Mac malware warning


March 26, 2009

Owners of Apple Macs are being warned about a new Trojan that is capable of attacking Macs as well as Windows powered PCs, according to research by the Sophos security organisation.

It has been found that there is an OSX/RSPlug Trojan Horse currently being transferred though websites, which is offering users fake HDTV software.

When it comes to computer users it makes no difference which operating system they are using, if they download software from a site that they do not know, then they are taking a big chance.

The tricks used by these people to get unsuspecting computer users to download infected software are becoming increasingly sophisticated and look genuine enough.

Therefore, it makes no difference whether the user is on a Mac or a PC, the virus will catch anyone who comes by.
