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.

Welcome to the first release of Windows... sorry MacOS X Malicious Software Removal Tool. Personally, I don't like the double M (even worse MXMSRT), I think it will twist the tongue of Apple users every month.
