    I have a nastly little virus on my computer (backdoor.litmus.gen) and I cant get rid of it. I have seen it done in DOS, but I dont really know my way around DOS so that is kind of out of the question. None of my virus scans can do anything about it, so does anyone have any programs or knowledge on what I should do? Any help would be greatly appreciate.

    Thanks for that! I'm running it now, and it has found 2 virii so far.

    there are about 50 known virii on the mac...and they are all curable :D there are something like 25,000 known on windows and hundreds are made daily.
    its not often that mac-users get to gloat at windows users, so I like to take every chance I can :p

    that said, OS X is unix based, so unix viruses will probably transfer over...but I don't use OS X...yet.

    okay, I'm done :oops:
