fake av, fake av mac, paypal wikileaks
You can now get your very own fake AV for your Mac.
So far no one has reported anything deeply malicious, it just installs and wants a credit card. Now if it had some sort of rootkit or trojan payload along with it, that would be bad. Its using a feature in Safari that will automagically open a “safe” file once it has been downloaded to your machine. It then will execute the installer and just happen to ask you send $99 via paypal.
Man if that paypal account was linked to wikileaks it would already be down.
