Mac OS X Remember the Mac trojan that we reported about earlier this year? A trojan was found piggybacking on the back of copies of iWork and Photoshop CS4 found on warez sites and networks, and it would install itself after the user had entered his or her administrator password during the software's installation. This trojan didn't seem like much of a threat back then, but as it turns out, it's now in use in the first Macintosh botnet.

Except you're wrong in that iWork '09 does NOT require a serial number like iWork '08 did.

Oh, yes it does, at least if you download it. I know, as I bought iWork 09 and received a serial number... and entered it to unlock after my thirty day trial period had ended. Perhaps if you order it on cd it's different, and it may very well be different if you bought it with your Mac instead of afterward.

The download version needs a serial no. The disk version doesn't.
