Apple Mac OSX hit again by Malware

VirusIn as many weeks, Apples Mac OSX is hit by another Java malware exploit called SabPub. I just as I have mentioned in the past that Apple are really on the edge of an explosion of malwares that will target this platform. Its the price you pay these days for being popular.

“In a set of recent updates to Mac OS X, Apple patched a vulnerability in Java that had allowed a Malware infection known as Flashback to spread to some 700K of its computers. Now, a new backdoor Java threat called SabPub has reared its head, validating Apple’s aggressive measures to block issues due to the plugin.

Internet security firm Kasperksy details a new malware variant called Backdoor.OSX.SabPub.a that is being spread using another exploit in Java.”
