Some of you may still remember the story of MacSweeper, the rogue Mac antivirus tool that appeared around the time of the MacWorld Expo. Back then, the story got overshadowed by the Steve Jobs keynote and its star attraction, the MacBook Air.
Well, now that we have your full attention again, it appears as if the MacSweeper gang may be back. Researchers at Symantec are reporting that a new variation on MacSweeper has re-emerged under the name iMunizator. This version appears to be even more of a danger than the original MacSweeper which, aside from being a scam, was relatively harmless. Symantec claims that this one goes so far as to claim that legitimate software needs to be removed.
Consider yourselves warned.
