"As for the technical possibility of writing a virus for OS X, I do not understand what you think the problem is. You can modify binaries that you have permission to access, and can do so in such a way as to be self-replicating...."

Which still begs the question, why hasn't someone done this already?

Again, I can't believe there isn't some hacker out there that wouldn't want the title of "Writer of the First Mac Virus".

That's why I think there is a problem. If it was a trivial exercise, then it would have already been done.
