Alerts - Mac Trojan reported

Date Entered: 05/11/2004

As seen on and slashdot:

Macworld UK is reporting a case of malware being downloaded from Gnutella or Limewire. The trojan masquerades as an installer for MS Office 2004 with a pretty icon and everything. Underneath, though, is a script built to delete the users home directory.

Moral of the story: Don't download things from untrusted sources.

Microsoft has issed a statement saying no Beta for Office 2004 has been released.
