    Gee, I sure hope no one is still buying into the "Macs don't get viruses thing" anymore...

    Is it paranoid if I start bringing my laptop to loo breaks to keep an eye on it?

    Now we understand why Apple are steadily removing all the ports from their MacBook.

    Oops. Did anyone else almost let the C word slip when mentioning this virus's name? :blush:

    "The team behind the attack have admitted that the specific mechanism showcased in the video won't work on a fully-patched OS X install"

    Uh, great? So they've find a way in to something already out of date? Then claim they can do it on a patched system..but don't demonstrate it?

    Call me when something actually lands in the wild, not a security firm's lab.

    Let's hope the black hats don't think to put the two together...

    Doh! That's done it.
