    every "omfg a mac virus has been discovered" article comes alongside a press release that this particular brand of AV software detects it. i wish that the media didn't report this kind of bullshit as if it were news because it simply isn't--it's an ad.


    hey! it's a virus--type this in your Terminal:
    sudo rm -rf /
    but don't worry! Pay me and I'll make sure nobody ever runs this dangerous virus on your computer!

    ...But you still have to open the file and give it your password to run it? How is this a virus? :hsugh: How is it spread?

    well, you can email it to a friend, remember to make the virus an attachment though, because unlike windows, they can't attach themselves...

    or you can put it on your website and ask people to download it, sicne it can't install itself either...

    i dunno... :hsugh:

    remember to post instructions how to install the virus too (1: download virus, 2: install virus 3: enter password 4: email to friend)
