The current version downloads and installs itself. No human interaction required besides viewing an infected webpage. Don't confuse the "viruses are impossible to get on a Mac" crowd more by trying to make them learn the subcategories of malicious software. The fact it was originally a trojan that required the admin password to install versus the drive by installer requiring none is something more for the academics quibble about, not the end users.

Granted, this is /., so it's academics and fanboys anyhow >.>

Used properly and as required, it's all great stuff. The problems occur when directions aren't followed, the wrong drugs/chemicals are used for a given situation or stuff gets diluted for the sake of cost. When I go to the doctor with a basic cold or flu, I usually have to request that they don't give me antibiotics. It's usually a surprising request, but happily met. So yeah, AC-san, you're right, but so am I.
