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.

Hopefully, I'm tired of all this "my system is more secure", when 99% of the time a user purposely installs a virus through something like a font pack they found online. The system is irrelevant, it is usually the users fault; and of course it would be too rude to tell them that so this remains a dirty little secret.
