Due to an exploit in Apple's Remote Desktop Agent, a new 'trojan horse' has surfaced for Mac OS X; and with it, appeals from Anti-Virus software companies claiming you need to buy a product to protect yourself.

The truth: this trojan horse, so far, has not been documented in the wild, and in fact, we find it highly suspicious that multiple Anti-Virus companies have been able to get a hold of it.

ARD Patcher is a free and small application that will patch the exploit, free-of-charge, as in reality its a simple patch that Apple will surly fix in an upcoming update.

Getting an antivirus program is just overkill in this situation, despite what all the companies that make them will tell you.

ARD Patcher is a free utility that patches the infamous ARDAgent exploit in Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5.

Unlike some of the other "fixes" out there, this does *not* disable Apple Remote Desktop, nor does it force-enable Remote Management, it is completely safe and has been tested extensively.
