Very Weak Mac Virus Discovered

Another Mac virus popped up last week.  It doesn't sound very dangerous, having infected approximately 50 machines.  Symantec calls it the Macarena Virus.  News reports indicate that the coder had a hard time creating the bug, which only affects Intel based Macs.  This virus isn't dangerous by itself, but the source code is out there which means someone could "improve" on it.

Details are in Silicon.com and Macworld UK.
