Removal tool for Trojan found in pirated copies of iWork ’09

SecureMac released iWorkServices Trojan Removal Tool, a free utility created to remove the iWorkServices Trojan from infected Macintosh computers running OS X.

This tool is in response to a new trojan horse in the wild that  comes bundled with pirated copies of Apple’s iWork 09. When infected copies of the iWork 09 installer are run, they install a hidden trojan program called iWorkServices with full access rights to the target computer.

Once the trojan is installed, it will attempt to connect to a remote server and provide the server with  the infected computer’s network location.  It then listens for further instructions from the remote server, which may include instructions to download additional components.
