I am told that the trojan horse is not a real threat, but the removal tool seems to be a real problem. It will not let me remove it. If you have figured how to get rid of this program please tell me.

The developer writeup implies the Trojan can bypass the need to enter a password to install this Trojan. Its a little ambiguous and potentially misleading in the way it is worded.
Perhaps SecureMac can provide some clarification on this?

It is my understanding you are prompted for your password, AFTER which it doesn't need your password to cause more mayhem (kinda obvious!). SecureMac seem to imply it uses Java to bypass the need to ever enter a password.

Thank you for the update.

The Trojan requires authentication and does not bypass Mac OS authentication prompts. Good to know.
