Well, first of all: Hello. I am new to these forums but Im pretty sure Im gonna like it here.

Another Exploit has been found on OSX. This only shows that as long as a OS has a X number of users, it will get hit. No OS is imune to Virus.

OSX users can test their OS here, they also have a Workaround for this.

Just as an update the work around is not effective, and the problem is far more prevalent than first thought. It involves Mail as well as Finder. The SANS article has a very good description of the issue with several updates referring to the new updates.

Yeah I use both Mac and PC. Obviously have more problems with the PC, spyware malware-wise, but it makes me more careful than most Mac users I think. I use some open-source antivirus app, Clam, to keep my Mac clean.
