Looks like some malicious bastard has created something that people are labelling to be a virus for OS X. Before I post any links though, some things that are known about it... 1. It disguises itself as a jpg, in-fact it's a binary. 2. It abuses spotlight to find any .app files and propagates itself in them. 3. It tries to copy itself across the LOCAL network to other macs (via shared drives). 4. There have been reports of it trying to send itself out via iChat (To Win32 AIM users ironically enough). 5. There have been NO reports of it spreading outside of a local network. 6. There have been NO sightings of it outside of the MacRumors.com forums. To combat it, make when you open a file, you know what it is... keeping file extensions shown is a good way of doing this For more information: 1. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=180323 2. http://www.ambrosiasw.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=102379 p.s.
