Business seems to be booming in the world of Macintosh infections. You might remember my post last week about the Flashback Trojan.
Well, a variant of this nastiness has been spotted in the wild.

It will quietly sit there – unnoticed – and activates when you open that same Word document. Just another reason for buying some security software for your Mac.
