I wish they gave a bit more info. I did read this past week about a Trojan Horse that infected some Macs, but it was *much* more involved than someone who just "clicked on a Web link".
The Trojan I read about hit people who went to a specific Russian website to download pirated copies of expensive software, or downloaded an illegal copy of iWorks over BitTorrent. AFIAC, if you are out stealing, getting a Trojan Horse is Karma. What's the old saying - "You can't cheat an honest man"?
Maybe he was running Windows on that Mac?
At any rate, if anyone does have solid information on this, please share so that us Mac users can take any appropriate actions, if needed. I won't hold my breath, otherwise I would have been buried many, many years ago.
