OSX/Imuler.C

I’ve just had an article go up for Infosecurity Magazine on a recent variant of OSX/Imuler that uses a novel (for this malware) approach to hiding its malicious intent: it hides a malicious app among several JPGs and has a photographic icon that makes it look as if it, too, is a graphic. (This is a pretty good argument for changing the Finder default of not showing filename extensions.)
