New Java-based attack can infect both Mac and PC users.

Ars Technica: Mac owners usually don't have to worry about malware as much as PC owners do, but a new Java-based attack is affecting both operating systems. A Trojan known as trojan.osx.boonana.a is spreading when users click a link titled "Is this you in this video?" at various social networking sites.

Users can protect themselves by disabling Java or by avoiding suspicious links.
