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.

Sorry, takes me 15 seconds to reboot of my backup partition which is normally is not mounted so it can't be touched without my noticing.

Additionally, about 95% of my data found on my /boot drive are infact links to other partitions and rm does not follow links off the partition it is working on.

Is there an option for that?
