OS X iWork Trojan Revamped, Repackaged, Rereleased in Photoshop

Illustration for article titled OS X iWork Trojan Revamped, Repackaged, Rereleased in Photoshop

The nasty OS X trojan from last week has resurfaced, and this time hits software pirates where it hurts the most: in Photoshop.

The trojan has been retooled a bit too, presumably to foil the fixes that were issued after the initial iLife scare. I'm sure a patched fix will come out soon enough, but the best tactic is to avoid this kind of thing altogether by, oh, I don't know, not giving pirated software root access whenever it asks for it.

DISCUSSION

I find it funny that everyone on here is bitching about pirated software, when the real issue at hand is hackers are finally making the transition to Apple and now the "Apple doesnt get viruses" will come to an end.

I personally am pretty excited for the revolution

side note: What makes photoshop worth $1000?

There should be a photoshop lite for $100 so the majority of us can make a wallpaper or whatever little thing we would normally use it for.
