OSX/Oompa A, Trojan or Worm?
Each report describes the basics of Oompa-A, yet they all reach different conclusions about what it is. Actually, Sophos has no idea what to call it, so they're saying it's both a worm and a virus. I'm leaning a little more towards the trojan side myself. Oompa isn't capable of doing anything without a form of user intervention, and that includes its propegation to other users.
...Maybe the time has come to stop using terms like virus or worm, and just create one cool sounding word for all forms of harmful software. Trojan or Worm?
