Privacy, Security, Encryption "Intego has discovered a new Trojan horse, OSX.Trojan.iServices.A, which is currently circulating in copies of Apple's iWork 09 found on BitTorrent trackers and other sites containing links to pirated software. The version of iWork 09, Apple's productivity suite, are complete and functional, but the installer contains an additional package called iWorkServices.pkg." Update: A new variant has been discovered in a pirated version of Adobe Photoshop CS4, also information about one target of a DDOS attack coming from the trojan.

There isn't even any reason to download iWork from a pirate site. You can simply punch in any serial into Apple's trial version (no, I didn't pirate it). I'm actually surprised that it took this long for trojans to really take advantage of the installer. Or maybe this is just the first case of widespread infection.
