Free Trojan removal tool for Macs updated

SecureMac : 29 January, 2009  (New Product)
SecureMac releases upgrade to free Trojan removal tool to remove malware from pirate copies of Photoshop CS 4
Since SecureMac released its iWorkServices Trojan Removal Tool last week, a new related trojan has been detected in the wild. As a result, SecureMac has updated the tool, and renamed it iServices Trojan Removal Tool. The tool is still free to download and use, and now detects and removes the new variant distributed with pirated versions of Adobe (ADBE) Photoshop CS 4 for Apple (AAPL) Mac OS X.

Pirated copies of Photoshop CS 4 are reported by Intego to contain malware. On January 16th, a copy of Photoshop CS 4 containing the trojan variant was seeded to a number of peer-2-peer networks. This trojan has been labeled OSX.Trojan.iServices.B and is the second variant discovered in the wild -- variant A was found earlier this month in pirated copies of iWork 09. Like its predecessor, variant B obtains root privileges, and notifies the remote host of the infected computer's location on the Internet. It is recommended users avoid downloading pirated copies of these programs. Furthermore, it is anticipated that new variants will be discovered in the coming months in other software packages distributed by third parties over the Internet.

Users who feel they might be infected can use SecureMac's free iServices Trojan Removal Tool to remove known trojan horse variants.
