    MacDefender - Indicator of future malware or not?

    What are your thoughts on malware for Macs like MacDefender and the Mac OSX exploit kit that were recently released? Is this the beginning of malware being a serious problem for Macs, or is it no big deal?

    ..Or is it the beginning of a new market segment ?
    I'd be more concerned about mobile applications...

    For who, the AV companies or the attackers stealing money from Mac users?

    Me too, probably only a matter of time before that becomes popular with attackers.

    It's already popular amongst security researchers. A lot of PoC have been published lately (or developped for those not publicly known). As you said it's only a matter of time until a big mafia gang get aboard the mobile threat train.

    Did anyone test it yet on Lion?
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.
