As of the release of this software (April 12, 2004) there haven't been any positive conformations of any harmful media trojans. However, the technicality of such an attack is possible and the Macintosh community is likely to begin to see infected files in the near future due to their recent exposure. The Achaean can be used to find and remove these trojan viruses from media files. It is intended to be used to check newly, or recently, downloaded media files (such as MP3s) as they are more likely to house a trojan than older files. The Achaean supports all major audio, video and image formats, although MP3 files are most subject to housing a trojan because the trojan's executable code can be easily hidden inside their ID3 tags.
