New Trojan TARGETS the Mac, while Apple FINALLY reaches out to security pros

New Trojan targets the Mac, while Apple finally reaches out to security pros

"Some security researchers have long complained that Apple won't take security seriously because doing so conflict with the company's marketing message that Mac buyers need not worry about being attacked. The discovery of a beta of a Mac-attacking Trojan once again shows Mac invulnerability to be a myth. And in an unrelated move, Apple has reached out to security researchers, showing that it may finally take security seriously.
The security company Sophos says that it's found the beta of a backdoor Trojan targeting the Mac that's "a variant of "a well-known Remote Access Trojan (RAT) for Windows known as darkComet."
