New Mac Trojan Horse Could be in a PDF

Malware has been found on the Mac recently. The Mac is no longer safer then other OS's. This Trojan basically disguises itself as a PDF file...

This Trojan Horse disguises itself as a PDF file with a ".pdf.exe" extension and then has the familiar PDF icon.

Once the user runs the PDF it creates a backdoor and opens a Chinese-language PDF. It opens this PDF to distract the user while it creates a backdoor.

In order to disinfect your Mac you must allow F-Secure Anti-Virus to remove the files. More information on the Trojan check F-Secure with their detailed overview.
