David,

No one claimed that this wasn't a "real" Trojan, and therefore I don't
think anyone here needs "corroboration".

But it's a Trojan, which requires user interaction, downloading
something manually, and expressly granting it administrative
privileges to your machine.

I'm just wondering about the future..every time there is a new
manually executed trojan for Mac OS X, will there be a new post on
focus-apple and a flood of articles in the IT and mainstream press
about it?

We've had dozens of various pieces of malware for Mac OS X; every
single one of them seems to get a vastly inordinate amount of
attention, usually followed up with a bunch of commentary about how
those smug Mac users will finally have to "admit" that their platform
isn't invulnerable.

When will this stop? When Mac OS X has has at least much malware as
Windows?

- Dave
