Multi-platform backdoor malware targets Windows, Mac and Linux users

Quote:
Yesterday, our friends at F-Secure discovered malware on a compromised Colombian transport website that was capable of infecting Windows, Mac and Linux users.

Visiting a hacked webpage, triggers a JAR (Java Archive) file which will ask permission to do its business - secretly determining if you are running Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.

Two things that caught my eye:

1. That is one brutally wounded picture of Tux.
2. Windows needs more hugs.

Seriously though, this is one more reason to not keep Java around if you don't need it.
