Hey Mac Users… The Honeymoon is Over.

I know, its sad.  I too am a die hard mac user.

Today alone I have received 4 copies of an email with the subject line “2 Populaar Myths About Female Orgasms -  How to Become an Irresistible Lover” containing an attachment named “Preview.app Document”.

I haven’t had a chance to analyse the .app yet, but I think its safe to assume that its malware of some sort.

The good news is that OS X is still built well.  If I double click it thinking its a document its going to tell me “Hey stupid!  This is an app that was downloaded from the Internet.  Are you sure you want to run it?”.  Maybe not in those exact words.  At that point if I say – “I thought I was opening an document, but sure, lets run this app-like-document” – then I deserve to be infected.

For all the detail oriented folks here are the headers (bold are items changed to protect my info):
