BlackHole RAT Mac OS X backdoor Trojan virus mimics password prompt (Download Squad)

Feb 28th 2011 11:40AM @Sebastian Anthony Argh... freaking DS stupid comments....

The main part DownloadSquad didn't report was this sentence (quoted from Sophos' article on this malware):

"As even the malware itself admits, it is not yet finished, but it could be indicative of more underground programmers taking note of Apple's increasing market share."

Did you read that? The malware isn't even FINISHED. How did Sophos get it's hands on unfinished malware? Sounds fishy to me.

Dec 29th 2010 11:58AM @Lee Mathews The majority of those have a threat of "None" or "Very Low" or even "Minuscule." Most are proof-of-concepts. The only two that are "Moderate" require you to input your password before it installs itself.

McAfee: Smartphones, Apple devices to be top malware targets in 2011 (Download Squad)

Dec 29th 2010 11:08AM "Mac trojans have already become increasingly common in 2010..."

You're kidding, right? You link to one "trojan" which requires a user to enter their password before it installs itself. Give me a break.

File this under "Another attempt for McAfee to sell a single copy for OS X."
