Default New Trojan Uses Macs to Attack Websites

It seems that Hackers are recycling old Linux malware to use on Mac OS X. It's kinda funny how, even when dealing with malware, everything comes to the PC first and then it takes years to come to the Mac. Software security company ESET reports that hackers have successfully ported older Linux-targeting malware to Mac OS X. OSX/Tsnunami.A is a new variant of Linux/Tsunami, a malicious piece of software that commandeers your computer and uses its network connection to attack other websites.
