Yes, it is being done by a regular online gang--itw--it is not yet
another proof of concept. The same gang infects Windows machines as
well, just that now they also target macs.
This means one thing: Apple's day has finally come and Apple users
are going to get hit hard. All those unpatched vulnerabilities from
years past are going to bite them in the behind.
I can sum it up in one sentence: OS X is the new Windows 98.
security ONLY as a last resort losses money, but everyone has to
learn it for themselves.
