Pirated Photoshop CS4 for the Mac also has trojan

About four days ago, I posted a story about pirated copies of Apple’s newly released iWork ’09 were found to contain a trojan.

Intego, makers of Mac security software, reported that the trojan it calls “OSX.Trojan.iServices.A” were packaged into pirated copies of iWork ’09. What the trojan does once installed into a Mac is to allow somebody else to gain access into the system to possibly download more components into the infected Mac.

Another trojan, a variant of the one found in illegal copies of iWork ’09, has been found to be infecting pirated copies of Adobe Photoshop CS4. The trojan called “OSX.Trojan.iServices.B” also allows a malicious user to gain access to an infected Mac to perform various actions or downloads remotely.

How do you protect yourself against these trojans or malwares?

Simple.

Do not download and install software or applications from untrusted sources, especially from torrent sites or peer-to-peer networks. It doesn’t pay to pirate.
