Mac OS X We don't normally report on security issues, especially not when they occur on Mac OS X. So far, the security issues on the Mac can barely be labelled as such, and really don't deserve a lot of attention. Now, however, it would appear we're looking at the first successful widespread malware infection on Mac OS X. Not a bad track record for an eleven year old operating system, by the way.

I thought the other press headlines was a bit sensasionalist and confusing.

550,000-strong army of Mac zombies spreads across world

Confusing because they where actually referring to the machines.
