OS X malware, KnockKnock, Elk Cloner and the Universe

Here’s an OS X-related article I just posted on the IT Security site: OS X malware: I hear you KnockKnocking but you can’t come in*

Patrick Wardle’s KnockKnock is useful for the generic detection of OS X programs that maintain ‘persistence’, but it isn’t a replacement for anti-malware. (I suppose I should mention in this case that a lot of my income comes from providing consultancy to the anti-malware industry, but no anti-malware company has anything to do with this site, and of course Kevin Townsend’s IT Security site is vendor-independent.)
