Phishing Trojan targets Mac OS X

Security vendor Intego claims to have uncovered a new Trojan attack that targets Apple's OS X operating system. The OSX.RSPlug.A Trojan disguises itself as a video codec that offers access to a pornographic video.

Intego said that malware authors have spammed Mac forums with links for pornographic websites hosting the malware. Users attempting to install the codec receive a piece of malware classified as a 'DNS Changer' which modifies the way OS X handles the DNS requests used to link numerical IP addresses to web URLs.
