Symantec has published an interesting article concerning viruses on Mac OS X. “Let’s start with the hot-button issue of Mac OS X viruses,” says the column’s author Todd Woodward. “Simply put, at the time of writing this article, there are no file-infecting viruses that can infect Mac OS X. I see some of you raising a hand or two, wanting to ask me some ‘but, what about…’ types of questions. Indeed, in February of this year, when OSX.Leap.A was discovered the news headlines declared that it was the ‘First ever first ever virus for Mac OS X!’ Long before the digital ink dried on those simplistic and sensational headlines our Security Response team had determined that OSX.Leap.A was a worm, and not a file-infecting virus.” [Thanks to MacMinute reader Jacques for this news tip.]
