Scareware makes its Mac Debut

So there’s this “cleaning tool” for the Mac that’s actually a scam and/or trojan horse. It always reports that you have something awry on your system, and offers to fix it if you cough up some dough.

This kind of stuff has been all the rage in the Windows world for years, now, but I can’t see this one taking off, because the app itself is ugly as sin and we Mac folk just don’t take too kindly to that.
