Apple Gets a Bugg of its very own :)
« on: May 12, 2011, 06:53:41 PM »
So I ran across this and just had to laugh, as it seems that some enterprising soul has ported a ScareWare hijack over to OSX (I've been giggling for days).

Intego warns of rare Mac scareware
and
Mac OS X crimeware kit found on underground forums

The 2nd one referrs to this particular little bugg as (Think Different...) "CrimeWare" (HA!) As if Just because its infesting a Mac it's suddenly a crime?!? Perhaps Buggering a Virgin is supposed to be worse or something *Shrug* But snApple ain't no virgin.

Apple isn't the one on the receiving end...

I don't think much has changed. Except I've been trying to be somewhat calm...
