Macs being attacked by Windows Malware (!?)

Yes, the headline is correct!  See Paul Wagenseil’s article here in LaptopMag for the full scoop…

In summarizing the developments…

 The Windows malware comes hidden in pirated copies of popular Mac shareware programs found on torrent sites. It uses a widely available software-compatibility framework to run on Macs, then gathers system information and tries to install more Mac malware and adware. The Windows malware has already infected Macs in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries.

I have to say I didn’t envision this one happening but the more I think about it, I shouldn’t be surprised!
