Bugs & Viruses Mac Antivirus developer Intego might have stumbled across an OS X specific virus being offered for auction that targets a previously unknown ZIP archive vulnerability. From Intego's posting, it appears that an enterprising auctioneer seems determined to make sure that his name is one that is not forgotten when it comes to Apple security, claiming that his exploit is a poisoned ZIP archive that will "KO the system and Hard Drive" when unarchived.

"claiming that his exploit is a poisoned ZIP archive that will "KO the system and Hard Drive" when unarchived."

Wow - should propagate like molasses then if the first thing it does is kill the hard drive.
