Mac OS X It's sad to see that even after all these years, we still have to write articles like this one. It's all over the web right now: a new backdoor Mac OS X trojan discovered! Code execution! Indicative of rise in Mac malware! Until, of course, you actually take a look at what's going on, and see that not only is it not in the wild, it can't really do anything because it's a beta.

The next time someone publishes a proof-of-concept for a Windows or Linux vulnerability I'll make sure to remember that proof-of-concept doesn't mean anything, it's not actually vulnerable because it doesnt do anything
