According to Symantec it spreads via BlueTooth. This is the first I've heard of it.

It’s a dam good thing I did because if I didn’t then OS X would have been compromised by the Bluetooth Directory Traversal Vulnerability.

How did you manage to get a virus over Bluetooth? Do you hang out with some really seedy hacker-types?

What version of OS X do you have? Because reports say only 10.3.9 and 10.4.1 corrected this vulnerability.

ok, you've got an eMac. So someone with another computer got within 30 ft of your eMac and gave you a virus?

What version of Mac OS are you running?

CVE-ID: CAN-2005-1333
Available for: Mac OS X v10.4.1, Mac OS X Server v10.4.1, Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.3.9
Impact: Directory traversal via Bluetooth object exchange
Description: Due to insufficient input checking, the Bluetooth object exchange services could be used to access files outside of the default file exchange directory. This update provides an additional security improvement over the previous release by adding enhanced filtering for path-delimiting characters. Credit to kf_lists[at]digitalmunition[dot]com

I am running OS X version 10.4.5, also just to make it clear I am NOT here to bash Macs. And lpkmckenna you could be right a system within my range could have spread the worm. I know itís not my dads or sisterís iMac's so it has to be either my neighbors, or someone near my house.
