They also added signatures to detect and remove the latest versions of MacDefender. So by tomorrow, or even by late today, we should see another story about a new version of MacDefender that can bypass the latest update.

Welcome to the big leagues of having to play a constant cat and mouse game with the malware authors Apple.

Either that, or coming up with some real sandboxed security model at the cost of software compatibility. Hard choice, especially considering that Apple haven't taken the opportunity of iOS' release to do that vital update on at least part of their ecosystem...
