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.

He's talkin 'bout Defender; not UAC. Trojans are blacklisted onto Windows Defender updates. It also monitors a good deal of suspicious behaviour. Unless we're dealing with really advanced trojans; they'll likely be caught.
