Mac OS X Well, it took them long enough. Apple has finally acknowledged the existence of the MAC Defender trojan, and has offered removal instructions. The company has also promised a security update to Mac OS X that will block MAC Defender and its variants from working. All this information was published in the form of a support document on Apple's website. Update: Well, that was fast. A new variant of the trojan, called Mac Guard, has been discovered. Unlike previous variants, this one does not require users to enter their administrative password.

They're not much better now, in those aspects. However we're a smaller shop, so it doesn't impact us like it did you.

Also, the killing of the XServe without making OS X Server available to run on ESX is a pain in the arse.
