Is Symantec aware of this one and if so what is it called in the defs?

PS. Image portraits MacScan's removal tool for this virus.

Symantec has posted a description for what they are calling OSX.Exploit.Launchd. The PoC code is still being investigated, but it appears to exploit the recently patched vulnerability in launchd (CVE-2006-1471). This vulnerability was patched in Mac OS X Update 10.4.7. The exploit code was reported to milw0rm by Kevin Finisterre.
