Submission + - Apple quietly goes after Mac Trojan with update (thinq.co.uk)

Th'Inquisitor writes: Apple's latest update to Snow Leopard included software to protect Mac computers from a Trojan. Strangely, Apple didn't mention this fact in its release notes.

The malware opens a back door to a Mac that can allow hackers gain control of the machine and snoop about on it or turn it into a zombie.

"You have to wonder," said Graham Cluley, spokesman for web security Sophos, "whether their keeping quiet about an anti-malware security update like this was for marketing reasons."
