Mac OS X It's one of those days again. A supposed security threat appears, and the internet loses its collective brain and starts panicking like Alpha and Omega's kingdom come. This time around, it's a trojan horse thing (it's a trojan, worm, and root kit all in one, though) that targets Mac OS X and Windows. As it turns out, though, the threat this thing poses is not very large (at this point in time).

hah, sorry. The applet is a GLGears demo, using java and OpenGL. It needs access because it has native code to access OpenGL.

The fact that you got the "install" dialog, basically proves that Chrome isn't blocking it.
