But, recently secure Mac has discovered a new Trojan that affects all Mac OS X versions. It is being distributed through emails and social networks like Facebook.
When a user clicks on the link, the Trojan is executed by a Java applet that downloads files to your computer, including an installer that is automatically launched and asks for your password. After typing in your password, a malicious person somewhere in another continent may have an easy access to your accounts.
The Trojan runs in the background and completely invisible, so each time you start your computer, it sends spam messages through the users contact list. It may affect all popular platforms, such as Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and it seems to be a variation of a malware originating from the Microsoft environment.
