SecureMac Offers Free Trojan Removal Tool For Macs

iWorkServices Trojan Removal Tool is a free utility created to remove the iWorkServices Trojan from infected Macintosh computers running OS X

January 23, 2009 - Las Vegas, Nevada - SecureMac is pleased to announce it has released iWorkServices Trojan Removal Tool, a free utility created to remove the iWorkServices Trojan from infected Macintosh computers running OS X.

This tool is in response to a new trojan horse in the wild that comes bundled with pirated copies of Apple's (AAPL) iWork 09. Intego recommends "users [do not] download iWork 09 installers from sites offering pirated software (As of 6 am EST, at least 20,000 people ha[d] downloaded this installer)."

When infected copies of the iWork 09 installer are run, they install a hidden trojan program called iWorkServices with full access rights to the target computer. Once the trojan is installed, it will attempt to connect to a remote server and provide the server with the infected computer's network location. It then listens for further instructions from the remote server, which may include instructions to download additional components.

Users who feel they might be infected can use SecureMac's free removal tool to remove the trojan horse. The removal tool can be downloaded by visiting SecureMac.com; Intego's security alert is available at Intego.com in the News section.

More information on current Macintosh trojans, viruses and security software can be found at
