New (OLD!) malware spy-ware discovered for Macs on Tibet government in Exile website... uses the old Java Exploit that supposedly infected 800,000 Macs, except ONLY the Russian security site that "discovered" the "exploit" and no other infected Macs have been found... and in fact the database of "infected" Mac UUIDs was found to include brand new, just off the assembly line Macs that DID NOT HAVE JAVA installed! Ergo, bogus exploit, not that it didn't work, but that it did not infect anywhere near the number claimed.—PING!

Easy solution: Run Windows. It has a long history of successful multiple vendor anti-virus software.
