I have a MacBook running Snow Leopard 10.6.7. After doing a Google search and clicking on the link to one of the results, I got the screen shown below stating that Trojans were detected and that I should click on the "Remove All" button to remove them. Looks just like spyware screens I've seen on Windows PCs. Obviously, I did not click on the Remove All button.

I recently read that "Spyware Creation Toolkits" specifically for Mac are now available for sale on the internet.

Has anyone else seen this on their Mac?
