Mac OS X Trojan Poses as Flash Installer
The Trojan deactivates some network security features, and sends information about the infected Mac to a remote server.
"Unlike the previous Flash Trojan (called Bash/QHost.WB), which changed one file on the system, this new Trojan is a bit more complex and first deactivates network security features, then installs a dyld library that will run and inject code into applications that the user is running," writes CNET News' Topher Kessler. "The Trojan will also try to send personal information and machine-specific information to remote servers."
"The Trojan appears to use Apple's basic installer package system and includes Flash player logos so it looks like a legitimate software package," Kessler writes.
