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.

That probably be only your guess, your hope. I don't remember seen any company to "come out & make a statement the day attack began in the wild, saying what it was, exactly what they planned to do about it on what day, what method they were going to use, everything that the enemy.. blah blah" Corporations do not work that way.
