A storyGreenville Virus Experts Logo over on the Bitdefender blog warns that a trojan that is posing as a file converter (EasyDoc Converter.app) is out in the wild and once it is run, creates a connection to the outside world, allowing full control of your Apple Mac computer.

If you do not have current anti-virus / anti-malware software on your Mac, this will probably serve as a reminder that you are vulnerable to this type of exploit the same as any other computer system owner is.
