Malware and Anti-Malware News 6-1-11

  • New version of Mac Defender is released just hours after the May 31 patch issued by Apple.   I like how everyone is making a big deal about this.  Did they just think that all the variants would just stop?  Get used to it Apple…everyday.  Oh, btw the new variant is called mdinstall.pkg.
  • Microsoft releases System Sweeper – A free bootable Anti-Virus scanner designed to clean an infected 32 or 64 bit PC via the Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE).  Not only is this great for home users it’s going to really cut down on the duration of their support calls concerning malware.  You can download it from here:
