Warning!!! Mac iWork Pirates: Trojans Everywhere

Mac security firm Intego announced Thursday on a Trojan horse it spotted hiding in pirated copies of Apple’s iWork `09.

What does the Trojan horse do?

Firstly, Mac installer packages are made-up scripts that install the applications and various files in the correct places on a Mac’s hard drive. Whilst installing iWork `09 , the iWorkServices package is installed, and the installer for the Trojan horse is launched as soon as a user begins the installation of iWork, following the installer’s request of an administrator password.
The Trojan is installed as a startup item in /System/Library/StartupItems/iWorkServices,
where it has installed read-write-execute authorizations for root. The malicious software then connects to a remote server over the Internet and fundamentally holds open a door to the Mac.

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) dual boot with Fedora KDE

Whats the use? As the article says, its the pirated version that has the trojan. I don't see any piracy on the mac front as on the Windows side, or am I wrong here?

Translated to Windows terminology, it would be like Miscrosoft Office 2007's installer hiding a trojan. Of course a pirated version. That would be a quick way to open "doors" to many a PCs running "windows" ! He he!!!

I just downloaded 403,215 new headers for alt.binaries.mac so there's definitely "some" piracy going on.

I visit a site four or five times a day and after closing it the MOST POPULAR SITES are all goone!! So far this component is inexplicably useless. Has absolutely no value compared to how FF, Chrome, and even Safari handle this feature.
