MAC Users Aren’t Immune to Viruses

Recently a new virus emerged from the primordial goo directed at the MAC world.  It takes the form of an image or JPEG, but it also contains installable code specifically for a MAC with the Intel chips.  This emphasizes the point that you should never open an attachment that you aren’t expecting from someone you know, and, secondly, if you are not in the process of knowingly installing something, never answer yes to the PC (Vista and W7) question, “Do you want to allow this program to modify your computer?”  On the MAC side you will get a request for your password.  Don’t go there.
