I am a Trojan Horse, so i have infected your Mac Computer. I know, most people think Macs can't be infected, but look, you ARE Infected! I have full controll over your Computer and i can do everything I want, and you can do nothing to prevent it.So, Im a very new Virus, under Development, so there will be much more functions when im finished.

quote: Why is that so incredible? In any case that is not what I am saying but since you are a great reporter who clearly went to great depth with this one (or just repeated what he read elsewhere without researching the background)

quote: Read elsewhere for an explanation as to why no virus has replicated on OS X yet, it's certainly not because the operating system is unpopular because to claim such a thing makes you laughable in your profession
quote: So I'm supposed to do my own security research in addition to reporting? Is it not legitimate to cite a professional report on a topic I'm reporting on? If that's your expectations, sorry to disappoint...
quote: 0MFG did you actually just type that? So as a reporter you just take it as read that what you are being told is entirely the truth and there is no possibility that there is ANY other angle or interpretation of this situation at all? Do you report or do you repeat press releases?
quote: You wont want my advice but I'm going to give it. Dump the tech and go report for a week in Libya. Gaddaffi is a professional head of state (he's been doing it long enough) and he'll be happy to give you LOADS of professional reports that you can share with the world.I can guarantee you'll return a hero and black-gold tycoon.
