As a developer, I don't like pirated software. There is one thing lower than pirating, however, and that is putting viruses and trojans into software. This tool does what it says. I tested it out just to make sure I was not infected and I DIDN'T pirate iWork. Frankly, iWork is cheap enough that most anybody could afford it, even with the rotten economy. iWork is wonderful software... please BUY it from Apple. Kudos to the developer and their quick response to the threat.

If you're gonna talk about doing good deeds and being charitable, choosing Apple (the most profitable corporation on the planet) seems like an odd choice.

SecureMac protects against all malware threats to OS X, no matter the source. This particular trojan happened to be bundled with pirated software, but it could have been (and could still be) bundled with any software, be it free, paid, or trial software, or even compiled open-source distributions.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Nothing against the developer for creating a necessary answer to a malicious threat, but piracy is, and should be, a criminal offense.

That goes for movies and music too. People create a product and you are stealing from them. So stop.

Should we also blame girls for dressing up when they get raped??? Stop blaming the victims.

Lockheed, that doesn't even make any sense. Your analogy would have to mean that "girls dressing up" is illegal. Which it isn't. Pirating is illegal and ethically wrong. It is stealing. Of course intentionally putting a virus into the world is too. No one is condoning that. But the original statement still holds true. Don't pirate and you probably won't have to worry.

iServices Trojan Removal Tool is a free tool to remove the iServices Trojan horse spyware.

iServices Trojan Removal Tool is a free utility created to remove the iServices Trojan horse from infected Mac computers running Mac OS X. This tool is in response to a new spyware trojan horse (OSX.Trojan.iServices.A and OSX.Trojan.iServices.B) in the wild that comes bundled with pirated copies of software such as iWork 09 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.

When infected copies of the iWork 09 installer are run, they install a hidden trojan program called iWorkServices with full access rights to the target computer. Once the trojan is installed, it will attempt to connect to a remote server and provide the server with the infected computer's network location. It then listens for further instructions from the remote server, which may include instructions to download additional components. iWorkServices Trojan removal tool will remove this malware.
