OK Mac guys here we go again!

There’s Another Mac Trojan Spreading Via Microsoft Office documents and email attachments. The Trojan apparently spreads through infected Office documents, and it’s in “active stage”, which means that it searches through documents on infected machines.

Please note that this is a very sophisticated and malicious attack that not only ‘infects’ your machine but also installs a ‘bot’ to control it, scan through your system, and take what ever it wants to! ALL WITHOUT YOUR INTERACTION AFTER THE FIRST INFECTION!

The attack vector utilizes several vulnerabilities. The Java whole that Apple finally just fixed last week. And a Microsoft vulnerability that MS patched 3 years ago. (but they may update that patch too).

Please folks keep your Operating System, Applications and security software up to date and don’t be one of those poor naive bastards that thinks this cannot happen to you.
