A new Trojan known as "Sabpab" could hurt Mac users who run Java and Microsoft Word. Security researchers are warning users to make sure their computers have the latest software updates from both Apple and Microsoft, and to use anti-virus software. In some cases, manual removal of Sabpab may be needed.
