    Uhh, Guys isn't the Macintosh supposed to be virus/malware free? Then what in the world is Underhand Trojan Server. Had anyone ever had experience with it and if you did would you care to explain. Thanks.

    Yeah, unfortunately there are a few nasties going around these days. About a year ago was an app disguised as Word 2004 that would delete everything in your home folder. Plus I heard of one a couple of days ago that sends your keychain file off to a certain IP address.

    But look on the bright side, compare that with Windows! :eek:

    According to this Symantec webpage, the Hackertool.Underhand trojan is a false positive warning from Norton Antivirus. The fix is to update your virus definitions. It has been said many times, but in this case it is undeniably true: "Norton is the virus." Feel safer?
