1. Go to a shady pr0n site
2. download a codec nobody has ever heard of from them
3. mount the disk image
4. launch the installer
5. imput an administrator password
6 click through multiple screens to proceed with the install
before installing where it then sets up a couple fake DNS servers and a cron job that makes sure they aren't changed. If anybody actually follows through with all that, they deserve to have their computer infected with a trojan.
As it doesn't install itself or self propagate, it still isn't a virus which to my knowledge still doesn't exist for OS X.
It's not like we didn't see this coming.
In my case, this isn't the case.
The files that were corrupted were .jpeg or .jpg. I forgot, they're toast now.
The files were Classic Mac OS picture files that were for example pictures in of the program which I use on occasion.
So I'm in the clear of this "pr0n" site crap.
Problem is: Disinfectant is abandonware, ClamXV is half***ed, and VirusBarrier X4 is good, but now I'll be looking for a third party seller of the product or multi-package at a lower cost than Intego.
Thing is: If you download Classic Ware of any kind, it helps to scan the stuff before you open it, and thus have your Expander set accordingly.
Malware for OS X will become more prevalent at any rate. It's just going to be in
our best interest to be prepared no matter what sites you visit.
Malware is doubtlessly being written for OS X. As I post. Mark my words.
