Re: Known Mac OS X viruses-updated

@Rusli:

 

Can you please confirm that the Bancos virus you listed is in fact a Mac virus? I understand that any virus can be stored on Mac storage or hard drive- but your message suggests that the Bancos virus is in fact a "Known Mac OS X virus", whereas all the research on the web says that Bancos is a Windows Trojan Horse. I have not been able to find any evidence on the web that a Mac version of the Bancos virus has been released. Please confirm either way, thanks.

Hi

 

I saw that somewhere while I did a beta testing with F-Secure last year.

 

Yeah Sophos did mentioned that.

 

But check this out in the Apple Forum.
