OS X Trojan injects ads into pages browsed by Chrome, Firefox, Safari. Easy fix? DON'T DOWNLOAD UNKNOWN SOFTWARE.
A new trojan specifically targeted at Macs users and their browsers has been discovered that installs an adware plugin.
According to The Next Web, "Criminals have so far used movie trailer pages that prompt users to install a browser plugin, a media player, a video quality enhancement program, or a download accelerator. In other words, the usual schemes we’ve seen on Windows."
The solution is simple - be careful and DO NOT install unfamiliar software even if prompted to do so. http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/03/21/new-os-x-trojan-injects-ads-into-pages-browsed-by-chrome-firefox-and-safari-even-targets-apples-website/
