Is it a Song? No, its a Mac OS X Virus!


Late last week, Symantec discovered a proof-of-concept Mac OS X virus, dubbing it "Macarena", and claiming it posed a very low level of risk. The company did however mention that certain comments within the code indicate that the author had a real hard time creating it.

"Macarena" was described by Symantec as "a proof-of-concept virus that infects files in the current folder on the compromised computer."
