Watch Out For New Poker Trojan

I was alert to this article by empty_space on Twitter last night.

It seems like there is a nasty trojan malware virus going around for OS X. It’s official name is OSX.Trojan.PokerStealer and if installed on my Mac uses various AppleScripts to exploit and forward your user information including IP, usernam and administrator’s password to the source of the trojan.

I personally don’t play online poker, and am usually careful about what I download and install, but It’s a sad moment for Mac users who will have to start being more cautious with their online activities.

Read the info in the article on TUAW for more detailed info on the new trojan.
