    You'd have to be pretty damn stupid to download an Applescript with "trojan" in the title. Also, it's not hard to beat. Just delete it from your login items and examine the script to see what it did

    yeah but this is also proving that macs can get viruses too.. a lot of people think macs are completeley safe but they really arent.

    Yeah, that's totally true. Even though UNIX is extremely safe anyway, it's never impossible. This isn't the first mainstream Mac virus--this is about the fifth.

    Yeah, my mom told me it was because more kids were getting macs and they are completley unsafe when they use them.
