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.

a company that is in a business of selling anti-virus programs is reporting a virus on a platform that is currently not known to have virus issues and hence its users arent looking for anti-virus solutions

i am not saying they are trying to spread FUD to increase their bottom line but ...cant we wonder?
