What Is Boonana Trojan And How To Get Rid Of Boonana In MAC OS X

Boonana Trojan? Now is that something new, or have you heard of it before? Mac users beware! Especially if you are a lot into social networking sites, secure Mac has found out the new Trojan horse Trojan.osx.boonana.a, is out to cause problems to Mac OS X, in addition to the new version Snow Leopard [OS X 10.6].

Taking on the identity of a video, it is fast moving through social networking sites Facebook included. The Trojan comes in to form of a link into your message bearing the title ‘Is that you in the video?’ as the user taps this link, the boonana Trojan gets into a Java applet first, which downloads other files to the computer, where even an installer is added.

The installer then instantly launches and proceeds to set the system files to overlook the passwords, thereby giving room for external access to most of the files on the system. Although it is not seen, it is present behind at the startup, and most of the time stays unnoticed till it is too late. It is notorious enough to entrap users accounts so that it can spread its wings through spam messages.

Trojan is known to spread through e-mails to in addition to social media sites. Remember it’s not only the Mac users who need to watch out when downloading links to their PCs. The Java counterpart of the Trojan is cross platform and can cause trouble to Microsoft Windows users too.

It is also important to know that Trojan tries to conceal its internet actions and communications with the help of obfuscated codes along multiple files and will further try to connect to other command servers even if the primary ones are not reachable. So check carefully before you tap the links.

Server Mac has come out with a removal tool [download link] as a remedial measure to get rid of this virus. Users can opt to turn off the Java in their browsers to avoid Trojan horse. It is made possible by Safari by clicking the security tab under Safari Preferences and ensuring that the ‘Enabled Java’ checkbox is unchecked!

The Trojan horse runs in the background and seems to reveal system’s valuable information to servers on the internet, which can be considered a violation of any personal information.

It can therefore be quite dangerous to enter your password, unless you open a particular installer file and know for sure the details of the installer.

You can look forward to antivirus and malware software companies to come out with solutions to this problem, but at the same time ensure that your friend’s videos are genuine too. In case you want to enter into a video from Facebook, be very careful, not to furnish your password. In fact it is best to skip that installer and erase it our from your system.

Unless you supply your password, the installer cannot function and is useless.

How To Reduce Spam — The Funny Way :)

Getting mails from unwanted sources, about unwanted things, which you never requested for…wondering how you getting these mails ? SPAM, that’s what these mails are and you are being SPAMMED 🙂 .. aarrgh what did you do get spammed ? Well you don’t really need to do anything .. It is almost  quite an automatic process.

There are these so called BOTs which pick emails from various sources and pound those mails with SPAM, most of the SPAM mails are commercial, requesting you to buy some cheap stuff or driving you to a website from where you can download heap loads of Viruses and Trojans on to your system.

Wondering how to fight these SPAMs ? Not definitely an easy task. Firstly, I’d recommend prevent bullying your self from the SPAMMERs, do not leave your mail ID in public forums, or contact notes, Do not use it as signatures in any Public discussion boards. The SPAM bots are well trained to pick all these sort of places. Next do not register yourself with sites you have no idea whose behind ’em. And certainly if possible, avoid Hacked or PORN stuff. This should pretty much easy ways to keep SPAM off your Inbox.

Next, most of the mail providers ensure they combat SPAM up to a large extent. I’ve been happy with GMAIL so far and Yahoo too has improved on their SPAM Flagging capabilities. If the SPAM fights all through this and ends in your box, you can simply hit the SPAM button, which will ensure the id/IP which you got the mail from gets listed on the mail providers service, helping them build a better SPAM fighter engine.

Well a popular blog recently mentioned about a report which said e-mail ids starting with A get 15% more spam when compared to those starting with ‘Z’. Doesn’t make sense, firstly, why would anyone be worried about spam even before I open a mail id, and next concern is, lets say that my name starts with A and I already have a mail id, after reading the statistics, does the author expect me to change my mail id ?? 🙂 ..

My explanation for that is, there are fewer people whose name starts with ‘Z’ than those whose name starts with ‘A’ ;), provided the statistics is a credible one :).
