I don't see much sense in uploading executables – there exist links
(URLs) in Internet. Malware would be detected by ClamXav (http://
www.markallan.co.uk/clamXav/) or its command line only version from
Fink. I'm failing to understand how trojans (greeks in reality) could
work in Mac OS X – isn't there Launch Service that dictates that only
a particular application (or a few, sometimes) is right for that type
Script) can be malicious too. When thinking of the Apple Security
Updates from this year only: each filled once or twice a security
hole in a graphics format or a graphics application.
An UFS volume as upload area might be useful.
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
– origin unknown
