Intego Alerts Users To Beware of a PokerGame Trojan

The Mac-supported Web was "compromised" by a Mac Trojan that would allow cyber criminals to execute program "to act as root" on users computers, as reported by SOFTPEDIA on June 23, 2008.

While describing the recently detected Trojan, software security company Intego, which had earlier spotted the Mac DNS Changer Trojan in 2007, notified vnunet on June 21, 2008 that it had found another malware threat masquerading as a poker game.

As per Intego, the malicious code impersonates as a poker game and is circulated as a zipped file holding the so-called gaming program.

The trojans can be secretly installed onto a machine if it's inserted after an effective attack through a flaw like a browser flaw.
