Technical Description:

        Mac/Cowhand-A is a proxy trojan for the Mac OS platform.

       This trojan copies itself in the user's:
       * preferences folder ( "/Users/[UserName]/Library/Preferences" )
       * login items folder ("/Users/[UserName]/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist"), in order to be launched at startup.

       This trojan allows a remote attacker to have access to the machine and use it as a proxy for criminal activities.
