Hi Mike,

I see that the threat has now been added to a pirated version of Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Mac.

Crazy, right? We're tracking this one as well...

Yeah, it is crazy. But I'm glad Symantec is on it.

I guess with pirated software, you get what you pay for - and sometimes more!!

Re: New Mac Trojan...

Mike,

Thanks for the information.  

Can you say whether (a) the definition that covers this issue for iWork will also cover the Photoshop trojan, and (b) if not, is there a new definition coming to address the Photoshop trojan?  

Cheers!

Re: New Mac Trojan...

Hi pjp,

The Trojan is only attached to pirated copies of iWork and Photoshop.

Legitimate copies of the programs are not affected.

Hope that helps.

Re: New Mac Trojan...

hi Pjp!

I was traveling, so please forgive this late response. We updated our virus protection for both variants of this malware (A and B)--so you are all good.

thanks,

mike
