Quote:

Security researchers warn the cross-platform Boonana trojan has several vulnerabilities which allows anyone to discover and abuse computers infected with it.

The trojan first appeared in October last year and comes in the form of a rogue Java applet that contains instructions to infect both Windows and Mac OS X systems.

Hehe, that seems a little redundant... A trojan with holes in it that might let you get viruses?

In fact I'd bet that most trojans and virii are pretty poorly written and contain any number of other holes in them besides their actual malicious intent which is usualy bad enough to warrent a rebuild anyway.
