Bill, this came up on one of my forums and I caught it in the bud - I posted right after the fellow who posted with a provocative "Macs now virus targets" title (or words to that effect). I did read the article and you are right. It's cross platform being a Java exploit. It should also be noted that Apple has been and is depreciating Java. It will probably go away in the future just as Flash (at least in its present form) is slowly being "phased out".
