Reward for proof of Mac OS X virus considered

updated 01:30 pm EDT, Wed September 28, 2005

$500 virus bounty

Wil Shipley on Monday announced that he is "to the first person who can prove that a Mac running Mac OS X (version 10.0 or greater, and patched to the latest security level available at the time from Apple) was accidentally and detrimentally infected with a virus that exploited a flaw in the base Mac OS X installation before September 20, 2005. The definition of 'virus' will for this contest will be either a virus or worm as described by the wikipedia. The challenge ends at 23:59:00, October 16, 2005." The bounty, if enacted, will be offered only once and pertains to a time period in the past which prevents would-be virus writers from collecting the reward.
