> Pob in our analysis labs blogged earlier this week about a new
> variant of the RSPlug Trojan horse for Mac OS X that he had written
> protection against.
> One of the ways in which the OSX/RSPlug-F Mac Trojan horse is being
> distributed by hackers is in the form of a poisoned HDTV/DTV program
> called MacCinema.
> As you'll see in this video, visiting a website that gives many of
> the signs of legitimacy, can lead to you downloading a Trojan horse.
> Even for the Apple Mac.
> The video is also available on YouTube.
> And don't try and tell me that this couldn't affect Mac OS X users
> because they would have to enter their administrator username and
> password to install the package. If they were prepared to download
> this program from this website, I feel pretty confident that they
> would enter their administrator details to allow installation too!
> Mac users are no different to Windows users in this regard - this is
> social engineering, plain and simple.
> Oh, and Windows users shouldn't feel too smug about this either. If
> you visit the site on a Windows computer, it will serve up a
> malicious Windows executable from the Zlob family of malware rather
> than a Mac OS X Trojan horse.
