MacNotables #623: Ted Landau on the Mechanics of Mac Viruses

Ted LandauTed Landau, the MacNotables resident troubleshooting guru, takes us on an in-depth tour of how some of the new Mac “viruses” actually work – what they do, what files they access, where they place themselves, how they propogate and more. No punches are pulled, so be prepared for a healthy dose of technical information that will help you understand what’s going on with the little programs that have been making big news on the Mac web and beyond.

(Editor’s Note: Ted asked that we let you know this was recorded before Apple released the most recent Security Updates, addressing protection against the viruses.)
