Could you give some links to information about MacOS viruses? I am
curious. The only thing I can find on the web are some trojans (like
Flashback) installed into user's web browser settings. These do not
constitute viruses in my book, as they do not lead to system level
compromise, they are just something installed into particular user's
with consent of that particular user. The only other thing I remember
when Apple failed to include into updates long released java
fix... compromise through which doesn't constitute successful virus
in my book as well.
Thanks in advance for information!
