MacDefender OSX Malware

Last week Joel Esler from the Sourcefire VRT published a blog post concerning the MacDefender OSX Malware over on the VRT blog. Similar to common PC scams, this "scamware" scares users into thinking that their machines have been infected and then captures credit card data. Joel provides great background on how this scamware works, what it does, and how users can protect against it.

Please check out the post on MacDefender and its variants for more information.
