New OS X Trojan installs adware in your browser

A new trojan specifically for Macs has been discovered that installs an adware plugin. The malware attempts to monetize its attack by injecting ads into Chrome, Firefox, and Safari (the most popular browsers on Apple’s desktop platform) in the hopes that users will generate money for its creators by viewing (and maybe even clicking) them.

Be vary wary of any Web page that requires you to install additional software you’ve never heard of in order to see content there.
