Surprise: Mac iWorm Spreads through Pirated Apps

The Mac Observer:

When news of Mac.BackDoor.iWorm for the Mac hit the Web last week, the way the  malware threat spread was still something of a mystery, but that’s been uncovered now, too: pirated software. Like so many other malware threats, attackers are using the promise of free software as a trojan horse to trick victims trying to save a buck into installing the iWorm payload.

There you go, to my question yesterday, good old pirating of software. Don’t steal, don’t get your computer all messed up.
