Mac users – trojan alert!

Mac users can be smug no more about viruses not being programmed to get them:
A trojan horse has been released that purports to be the installer for a pre-release Macintosh Office 2004 demo. When you click on the trojan’s icon (which looks like the Microsoft Office installer icon) your entire OSX home directory is immediately erased.
While this piece of “malware” does not infect your machine or try to send itself to others’ machines, it’s conceivable that someone could send it to you as an attachment. If you receive an “Office 2004 Demo” delete it immediately. More info is at macworld and intego.
Once again, this trojan only affects Macs running OSX … NOT Windows computers or OS9 Macs.
