Mac Virus Hits the Streets!

Contrary to some pronouncements, Macs can get a virus. I'm disinfecting one of this virus right now.

As with so many virii, user interaction is necessary to get infected. This one arrives via Apple's iChat instant messenger.

The link above is to a story at The Inquirer and will point you to Sophos, who have more information.

    I assume you or the owner of the mac was using iChat logged into a admin account? This is one reason it is recommended to use only a non-admin account when connected to a network, including the internet. This thing appearantly needed to get through only if the infected individual gave permission to install. This should have warned the person that this wasn't just an image as it was reported to be.
