First Mac OS X botnet activated

On April 20, 2009, in apple, malware, by Eugene

Macworld reported in January that illegal copies of iWork ’09 and Photoshop CS4 – distributed via peer-to-peer networks – were infected with a trojan called iServices. It now appears that the botnet created from this trojan has been activated, marking this the first time a Mac OS X botnet has appeared.

A sign of things to come? Maybe. But still no reason to panic.
