OSX/OpinionSpy Revisited

I was in Cyprus when I first came across the story about this spyware, which I blogged about here and here.

Unfortunately, although Intego reported on some of the screensavers that were associated with its distribution, I was obliged to update the blog and remove the link to that information, as it was removed from the Intego site. However, since returning to the UK, I've received further information and have also been able to check the 7Art web site myself, and confirm that some of the packages there are detected by other security packages as adware or spyware. That story has been updated on the Mac Virus site here.
