Researchers have found signs of a Mac botnet that apparently can get access to the root password. If you own a Mac – you might want to read this.
Please note that this is not a virus – it is a trojan that requires user interaction. In this case, you need to be running a pirated copy of iWorks. It’s not like the exploit just magically happens. You just get a little more software than you bargained for – proving that the user is always the weakest link in the chain.
If you open the door for the thief – the rest of your security doesn’t matter.
