Adware Trojan aims for Macs

More proof that the Mac OS X is not quite as secure as it's boosters thought. Apparently, this code can be installed without any user input, much less permission. This should not be able to happen and I imagine it won't take long for Apple to issue a fix. Still, it is proof Mac users should now keep up on security matters related to their chosen platform. They can no longer blithely assume security sufficient to the job is built in.

  1. Hi,

    If you have to compare computers with something else say cars then:

    Cars get a 9.99 reliability and computers get 0.01 points.

    Computers are very unreliable, although they are very useful.
