Pinhead Mac Trojan sticks it to fanbois
HellRTS-D snooping for backdoors
Miscreants have created a new strain of Trojan horse malware that establishes a backdoor on compromised Macs.
HellRTS-D (AKA Pinhead-B) disguises itself as the iPhoto photo application. The Trojan is a new variant of a strain of malware first reported in 2004, reports Mac security specialist firm Intego.
The Trojan, developed using RealBasic, is designed to set up its own server on compromised systems, and from there send email or contact a remote server. HellRTS-D has been spotted on various online forums but is not thought to be spreading, so the threat posed by the malware is currently low.
You're all doomed. So what do you have to say now then all your Macsters? Oh, you don't get malware right?
Doomed, doomed, you're all doooomed it's MSBlast all over again for the Apple, take a bite of that you fruit poopers.
Oh - you need to be stoopid enough to download some iThing to get infected i see. What, no worm functionality? God dammit, you Mactards cannot even write a decent bloody infectious trojan wormy thing. Useless boogers.
Ironic, Mac tore Windows Vista and UAC apart for asking people to enter their password to confirm they're sure they want to do something they've just told a PC to do, and now an idential issue pops up on the mac and the Mac defence is to say there's no possible infection vector.
Please, this kind of stuff helps issues, but in the end stupid people do stupid things and they'll just type the password in to open iPhoto as far as they're concerned.
2000's - decade of Windows problems
2010's - decade Apple begin to realise the problems they've created by telling people they can't get malware....

Where is this 'trojan horse malware' available and how do I download it and do I need admin rights to execute it?
