A week ago security firms found the first worm for Apple's Mac OS X and today a second worm has been found:
A second OS X worm has been identified that exploits an old Bluetooth vulnerability to spread from one Mac to another.

Inqtana.A is a 'proof of concept' and harmless worm that relies on a vulnerability in both Panther and Tiger that Apple patched last June. The patch is also included in all subsequent OS X updates.
