  1. If you mean the one that has recently been mis-reported by the press, It generally poses as a Flash installer, requires administrator permission to install (like all software), it attempts to disable OSX built-in anti-malware updates (by deleting configuration files), and opens/allows remote control; as long as you have your built-in anti-malware switched on (the one between the ears) you're safe.
  2. There's a more detailed thread at: https://discussions.apple.com/message/16459010#16459010

    Looks like it's also posing as an update for Flash, this is one of the reasons I won't install Flash Player on any machine.

    I have flash installed on my mbp from their website months ago. So far no problem happening to me.
