Finally a Mac Botnet? Could That Be Possible?

Yes, a Mac botnet could be very possible, according to researchers at Symantec, who say the malware spread inadvertently over peer-to-peer networks in January.

The researchers say the malware was embedded in pirated copies of Apple's iWorks '09 software and can cause Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. This is apparently the first ever Mac botnet.

Or should we say iBotnet?
