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.

[qThat's all well and good. And as long as that process is provided by the "system", i.e. a "trusted agent", rather than "joe random installer that I just authorized", then that could mitigate the problem nicely. [/q]

You are correct. We have to know we can trust the software. That is why I am very careful of what I install. At some point there is initial risk.
