Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host appears to have been compromised.

Description :

Using the supplied credentials, Nessus has found evidence that the
remote Mac OS X host has been compromised by a Trojan in the
OSX/Sabpab (alternatively known as OSX/Sabpub) family of Trojans.

OSX/Sabpab is typically installed by means of a malicious Word
document that exploits a stack-based buffer overflow in Word
(CVE-2009-0563). Once installed, it opens a backdoor for a remote
attacker to upload or download files, take screenshots, and run
arbitrary commands.
