Mac’s Freedom From Malware May Be Over

DailyTech reported –

Security researchers at Sophos Labs have discovered a naughty new trojan that’s in the process of beta testing attack capabilities against the growing population of Mac users. The trojan exploits open back doors in OS X to gain a good deal of access to the system.  It can be transmitted through a variety of vectors, including torrent files or seemingly legitimate download programs.  It could also be, in the future, delivered via the exploitation of browser flaws to perform “drive by downloads”. Once inside, the Trojan gets down to business, allowing the attacker to have their way with their Apple victim.  The attacker can plant text files on the desktop, force URLs to open, run shell commands, and pop up fake password windows in a phishing attempt. They can also force the users machine shutdown or reboot. When a reboot is forced an amusing message pops up, informing:

I am a Trojan Horse, so i have infected your Mac Computer. I know, most people think Macs can’t be infected, but look, you ARE Infected! I have full controll over your Computer and i can do everything I want, and you can do nothing to prevent it. So, Im a very new Virus, under Development, so there will be much more functions when im finished.

My favorite is near the end – If the world should blow itself up, the last audible voice would be that of an expert saying it can’t be done.– Peter Ustinov

Acting on a tip, undercover sheriff’s detectives began surveillance at Mandala Health Spa, 675 Tamiami Trail, and determined the women had received compensation for sexual acts within the business on numerous occasions, according to an arrest report.

Are Plastic Bags The Greener Option?

Cnet reports –

I find certainty a little dubious. Somehow, nothing has ever seemed that certain on this earth, so when people–especially scientists or green activists–claim they know everything, my skeptical muscle goes all Cirque du Soleil. So please raise an eyebrow with me to a stimulating article in the Independent newspaper. It reveals the existence of a report, commissioned by the U.K. government, that concludes that plastic bags are actually less harmful to the environment than either paper or cotton versions.
