Submission + - Mac OS X users targeted by in-the-wild porn Trojan 1

Anonymous writes: The Register is reporting a sophisticated Trojan has been released into the wide that targets Mac users. The malicious Trojan, dubbed OSX.RSPlug.A, is making the rounds on several porn websites. When Mac users try to view some videos, the site feeds them a page that says QuickTime is unable to play the file unless a special codec is installed first. If the user proceeds, a form of DNSChanger is installed that hijacks some web requests sent to eBay, PayPal and some banking websites, according to security firm Intego. Is this a sign that OS X is finally a big enough to be attractive to professional attackers?
