Mac Malware II…

…or just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Finder…

After I mentioned Graham Cluley’s malware timeline blog (A Brief History* of …errr Malware) a couple of days ago, we got to talking about the AutoStart worm, and he’s updated his blog to include it (and a mention of me/this site – thank you, kind sir!)

Of course, it’s the OS X stuff that interests people most nowadays, and Graham’s blog covers a fair amount of that, but AutoStart was a big deal in its day, as probably the most successful Mac worm (and a considerable nuisance), and deserves its footnote in the history books. Errr, blogs.
