[QUOTE]\nThat's such bullshit dude. You're talking out of your ass. To wit,\nthese pre-Mac OS X viruses and trojans:\n\n- MDEF corrupted applications and other files.\n- Scores corrupted the NotePad database (I know people who kept tons of\nimportant info in their note pads).\n- T4 deleted documents in the system folder.\n- Sevendust (aka MDEF 9806 and MDEF 666) deleted all files which are\nnot applications on the startup volume when the computer is running\nbetween 6 and 7 am on the 6th and 12th day of any month.\n- INIT 9403 deleted files, and attempted to erase currently-mounted disks.\n- INIT 1984 changed file creators and types to random 4 character\nstrings, which changed the files icons, rendering them unusable, and\nreset the files creation and modification dates to January 1, 1904.\n- AutoStart 9805-A, B, C, D, E and F caused serious damage by deleting\nfiles and destroying data. The different strains target different types\nof files, and damaged files are overwritten with garbage data, and\ncannot be repaired or recovered.\n\nSource: <[URL]http://www.macvirus.org>[/URL][/QUOTE]\n\nthey did no such thing. most of those are "could" or "might", never can\nyou find a "classic" virus or trojan "that did" any of those things\nlisted..... that's my point, it's a fact, deal with it.[/QUOTE]\n\nRiiight - so I guess the memory of a friend of mine back in the early\n90's catching INIT (from a Kinko's diskette) that deleted his FileMaker\ndatabase among tons of other files on his Centris 660 - that memory\nwas implanted in my head by spooks, right?
