This is a proof-of-concept Trojan that only affects the Macintosh platform.

It does not have any destructive payload or viral routine to infect or damage the target system. It also has no spreading capability.

The Trojan's only exploit is in its icon, which appears to be a valid MP3 file but is actually a Macintosh executable with an MP3 file inside.

Upon execution, it plays an MP3 file depicting the sound of a laughing man.

Simultaneously, it also displays a message box with any of the following text:

“Yep, this is an application (So what is your iTunes playing right now?)”
“(But you can add it to your iTunes library too.)”

Yes, I read about that this morning.

Been a long time since I saw a Mac virus, if you can call it a virus.

I read that a few days ago.. and I dunno.. I have a hard time believing it.. I think it's a hoax propagated by that virus company to garner more folks into purchasing the product.. it reminds me of our recent discussion on jpg viruses.

more info here.

would one of our mac users try and get the code/virus and test it out for us ? Rolling Eyes
