Linux desktop Trojan 'Hand of Thief' steals in | ZDNet

So. Someone's written a trojan for Linux. This goes beyond malware. Granted, you have to be a dolt to run it so it installs but how many people really pay attention to things like that nowadays? How many people know about these things like social engineering, etc.?
And how long til something like this hits OS X?

You can buy a copy for $2000 and test it out. Better do it now before the price goes up to $3000! I almost flipped out what I read that part, but I guess the bad guys will gladly pay the fee in order to steal your bank account. That's a serious Trojan.
