    It's not spyware. MobileMe is a new thing from Apple. It's currently shown on the Apple homepage.

    Yes it is Spyware. The Virus it will load will completely destroy your Mac including physical damage to the motherboard, HDD, Optical drive, RAM, and other internal components. Your only recourse is to immediately take your Mac out and spray it down with Grey primer spray paint. This will keep the virus locked inside the physical box and you can then have it cleaned by a professional to keep it from spreading.
