Tiny Trojan – Mac OS X TROUBLE?

Tiny Trojan Trots Into Mac OS X Turf

With the rise in popularity of Apple’s Mac computers and the OS X operating systems they run, dangerous malware, viruses and Trojans are now being targeted for the Mac, too. The most recent case in point comes courtesy of a security advisory released by SecureMac. The advisory warns that multiple variants of a new Trojan horse — out in the wild — is ready to run roughshod all over OS X 10.4 and 10.5. SecureMac notes that the Trojan, which is based on AppleScript and currently called “ASthtv05,” is only being distributed from a hacker Web site at the moment.”
