iWorm
« on: October 07, 2014, 09:32:46 AM »
If you're not already aware, a new piece of malware that affects 17,000 macs called "iWorm" has recently been discovered (http://arstechnica.com/apple/2014/10/apple-updates-definitions-to-prevent-iworm-botnet-malware-on-macs/) Anybody know if avast! detects this?

OS X internal AV, XProtect, already blocks it.
