Second OSX Proof of Concept

Today we got a sample of rather interesting case, a Mac OS X Bluetooth worm that spreads over Bluetooth.

OSX/Inqtana.A is a proof of concept worm for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). It tries to spread from one infected system to others by using Bluetooth OBEX Push vulnerability CAN-2005-1333.

Via F-Secure. I feel weird linking a CVE to not-MITRE. F-Secure’s full description explains that the code expires, and isn’t in the wild.
