(KMOV) – Mac users beware; a harmful virus is spreading fast.

After years of being mostly virus free, the “Mac Defender” Trojan is damaging many Apple computers.

The virus, which poses as legitimate antivirus software, urges Mac users to download it.

Any Apple user who downloads “Mac Defender” will not be able to have their computer repaired.

A security researcher at Z-D Net says Apple sent memo to support staff, stating that the company does not pay for the removal of malware.

The memo also told Apple staff not to confirm or deny whether a person’s Mac is infected with the harmful Trojan.
