Mac OS X Remember the Mac trojan that we reported about earlier this year? A trojan was found piggybacking on the back of copies of iWork and Photoshop CS4 found on warez sites and networks, and it would install itself after the user had entered his or her administrator password during the software's installation. This trojan didn't seem like much of a threat back then, but as it turns out, it's now in use in the first Macintosh botnet.

The problem is not that they are punished because the pirate software (most of them probably won't notice). The problem is that we that do not pirate are punished. A friend of mine says his mailserver receives 17 times more spam than "real mail". The botnets are to blame.
