Virus found in pirated version of iWork 09

But Macs can't get them so it is ok.

There is another "Virus" in the wild for Apple's OSX. This one comes in the form of a Trojan that has been placed inside a pirated version of the iWork 09 suite.

 

The "virus" called OSX.Trojan.iServices.A and once installed has root control over the system.

 

Intego is rating this as a serious threat, as of now the only way to be rid of the "Virus" is to reformat the system. There is also news of a way to inject malicious code into the Resident Memory in OSX.

 

In case you are wondering why I am using "" around the word Virus it is due to the fact that when Apple was contacted about this they responded saying this can't be a virus because Macs cannot get them.
