Pirate Version Of iWork Features A Trojan
Mac users should feel special toady because they finally can get across a pack featuring a Trojan created especially for them: the OSX.Trojan.iServices.A.
January 23, 2009
The productivity suite was reported s being “complete and functional”, but also having one extra feature: an additional package called iWorkServices.pkg. The package is installed alongside the suite ( the Trojan installer is launched when the user begins the installation of iWork) and will be added as a startup item.
The malware will be given read-write-execute permissions for root, will connect to a remote server and further download whatever malicious software its creators might desire.
Intego notes that over 20,000 Mac users have already downloaded the infected pack (and most possibly got infected).
