Very little info in article about how it actually spreads. Chances are it requires on the user to install it. Linux remains secure if that is the case...

You need just 100 macs infected for it to be on a large scale. Percentage vise smile.gif

High 5 thumb.gif I chuckled.

On a serious note, maybe this might get them to stop being so stuck up over their operating system. Seriously.

Could this affect Android and iOS devices as well?

Great job once again, fellas. Keepin OCN classy and professional, as always. rolleyes.gif

Anyway, since the article doesn't specify, it's likely that it requires root permission to be given to run, or installation requires physical access to a given machine. I'm not worried about my laptop nor either of my Linux boxes until some real evidence exists, not just a single sensationalist article without any real detail.

Read the bottom page and then someone explain to me how this doesn't sound like they made it to try and scare people into buying their product?

So...still no mention of how it can be installed (escalation of privileges?) and since they list a server/IP address couldn't you just make a firewall rule to block communication with that IP?

From their "database" page it says that it installs to the location: ~/WIFIADAPT in Linux...couldn't an rm -rf of it end the problem?
