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.

Exactly, even BeOS ( with its incredibly tiny market share ) had a couple of viruses

which brings me to 'virii' vs 'viruses'

I learned the plural of virus as virii, but the d**n spell checker says it ain't a word, and most people don't understand it, so with the general rule being 'common usage,' I use 'viruses' to avoid confusing the confused even more than I already confuse them with my long words ... and my small... difficult... words.
