BlackHole RAT on Mac OS?

Oh man, this is just funny…

According to Sophos, BlackHole RAT trojan have been reconfigured to run on Mac OS. It’s an old trojan, still in progress and in experiment stages, but this damn thing can do fun things like restart\shutdown computer, run shell commands, send out your browsing history… Stuff like that. And it’s sort of annoying because it asks you to put your computer’s password so it can install itself (Social engineering anyone?) on the OS.

It’s just funny that a trojan shifted entirely from Windows to Mac OS.
