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.

How about not giving average applications access to so much user data (which they really don't need) as a default setting, but giving the user the option to choose to do so for software which requires it, with an UAC/gksudo-like window ?
