Think Macs are immune to Trojan attacks? Think again. Wired is reporting that a Trojan has been making the rounds in OS X systems disguised as an MP3.
A Trojan horse, called MP3Concept or MP3Virus.gen, has been discovered that masquerades as an MP3 file. It hides in ID tags of the file and becomes activated when unwary users click on it, expecting to play a digital song.In its current state, the Trojan is apparently benign. However, the code could be modified to do all sorts of nasty things, so OS X users should be on guard.
"This is the first native Mac OS virus we've found," said Brian Davis, U.S. sales manager for Intego, a Mac security and privacy firm that discovered the Trojan.
