Attention Mac Users: Cross-platform Trojan Horse

Since today there’s a warning for all Mac users about a Trojan Horse, that is written in Java and its malicious code is dangerous for Windows and ESPECIALLY Mac OS X (!) too!

The program is called trojan.osx.boonana.a and spreads over social community websites like Facebook!

Messages like : „Is this you in this video?“ should never be clicked!

According to SecureMac the Trojan Horse installs via a Java Applet and gathers information and login data, which are sent to a server! Your Mac can be remote controlled!!!

SecureMac already posted a removal tool on their website, which can be downloaded right here: http://macscan.securemac.com/boonana-trojan-horse-discovered/#more-111

Please be careful 😉
