Found another one...
Mac malware uses right to left character exploit
So, anyone seen or heard anything about this one? Dang things are starting to pop up left and right...
Be careful out there.

Unless I misunderstand things, couldn't Apple just revoke the certificate for this, rendering it inert for those who use GateKeeper?

And how many people (like me) have Gatekeeper shut off?

Probably many (myself included). However, I'm willing to bet that those most vulnerable to this have it turned on. You and I can see this coming long before it does any damage but I suppose you're right - those who have it off and can't "read malware" are susceptible.
