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.

"LOL, as suggested by the writer, it never materialize.

All it appears to be is a leaked proof of concept. Mac fanboys can mod down my original post all they like, but the points are still valid. Nobody really cares to write malware for OSX because less than 10% of people actually use it.
"

That argument is really getting old now. The mac market share has been steadily growing for years, yet we haven't seen a surge in mac malware.

And I think people modded you down because you're just repeating that old questionable argument, not because they're "Mac fanboys".
