Fake Word 2004 Demo killt home folder unter OS X

Macworld UK:
"A Macworld reader alerted the magazine to the malware after he downloaded the file from Limewire. The reader told Macworld: "I downloaded the file in the hope that perhaps Microsoft had released some sort of public beta. The file unzipped, and to my delight the Microsoft icon looked genuine and trustworthy." However, he added: "I clicked on the installer file, and to my horror in 10 seconds the attachment had wiped my entire Home folder!"
Macworld has been able to acquire the file from Limewire, and has received confirmation from Internet security company Intego that its contents appear to be malicious."
Intego löst erst einmal große Fragezeichen aus, abwarten wie sich das weiter entwickelt...
