CmdrLaForge said:Mac virus attacks Windows PCs
By Macworld staff
Computer security firm Compurity has issued a warning about a new virus called Maccy.C that has been described as a "Windows cleaner".
It said Maccy.C tries to disable Windows software on infected computers, replacing it with a version of Mac OS X.
Compurity director Joss Bevet said: "Maccy.C is spreading through infected email messages and targeting machines running the Microsoft Windows operating system. Capabilities include the ability to uninstall the Windows operating system and replace it with a version of Mac OS X, the Apple operating system."
Antivirus software companies are warning PC users not to ignore the virus, which is carried as an attachment on an official-looking email, usually bearing a return address indicating it was sent by an administrator, computer support staff member, or manager. The email carries a message warning of an irregularity.
If the attachment is opened it installs a virus that uninstalls Windows, and opens a port on the user's computer. That port allows hackers to access the users PC and install a variant of the Mac OS X operating system based on Darwin. It is believed to resemble OS X 10.1.
The Antivirus Emergency Response Team rated Maccy.C a "high" threat to Microsoft.
