New name, same headache. The MacDefender malware we've told you about in the past has morphed into a similarly fake anti-virus application that is still attempting to trick unsuspecting users into a download. Be wary, but don't panic. [MSNBC]

At least with Windows no matter what spyware is released there will always be a tool to remove it albeit released shortly after the spyware is released. I don't think I've ever had to wait for a tool to come out to remove spyware on Windows. Much longer wait time with Mac. Just deal with your infected apple while you wait.. lol

I use windows relax, if I get infected I can remove it in half an hour. We won't have to wait till next week only to have the fix cracked in 8 hours. :)
