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.

Couldn't agree more. And this is something that many Linux/Mac die-hard fans fail to see.

Unless you use a specific guest account for Internet access, how inconvenient it might be, there is always the possibility to own an application and via it access your data.

All under a normal user account.
