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.

Then there are those which are propagated through websites - to which I have to ask myself - what websites are you going to that propagate these worms and virus's? they don't seem like very reputable websites if they're infecting their audience!


And what about sites, that are/were reputable, but got pwnd and spead virii without knowing it? Sure it's an exception, but not so rare it could be neglected.
