Symantec identifies two exploits of the ARD vulnerability

I’ve been looking for some AppleScripts or something that will try to take advantage of the [ARD vulnerability](http://blog.talkingmoose.net/2008/06/major-mac-exploit-is-thwarted-by-turning-it-on.html) I mentioned yesterday. Symantec has so far patched against two:
– [OSX.Astht.A](http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2008-062016-3239-99)
– [OSX.Astht.B](http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2008-062017-0131-99)
This is why I endorse having antivirus software installed *before* a threat. I have definitions set to download daily on my Macs but I can push them if I need. By now, all my Macs at work should be patched.
