Possible Mac Worm
Last week, some mania broke out in regards to the Apple Mac OS X operating system. So, what’s all the hype about, you ask? Well, according to some online news articles, it’s possible that there is a new worm looming around Apple’s pride and joy. Now, if you’re a Mac user, don’t panic just yet. Nothing is set in stone at the present time, but it’s always a good idea to keep your eyes and ears open. Keep reading for a few more details on this!
It’s said that there may be a vulnerability within the “mDNSResponder” unit, which is a component of one of Apple’s network services. Apple had patched this problem back in May of 2007, but some are claiming that it’s still open for attack. Now, I know you’re probably wondering where all of this information came from. Evidently, someone posted this information on an online blog and ever since, Apple has been trying to figure out the real story behind it.
It seems as if someone is posing as someone else to get the word out about this vulnerability. All of the information given doesn’t quite fit together, so there are a lot of people trying to figure out the truth. So, like I said, if you’re a Mac user, don’t stress out too much about this, because it might not even be true. It sounds like it could all just be a scam and in the end, we all may find out that there really isn’t anything wrong with the Mac operating system. I will keep you all posted on this, but until then, if you’re cautious of your surroundings when using your Mac computer, you’ll be just fine!
