I never ran into any virus related problems on my mac. Yet today I forgot to knock on wood after telling my colleague about it.

This morning the system I work on 2x2.66 dual-core intel xeon, 4GB OS-X 10.5 just decided to change all the disk privileges to "costum". I can't change it. I had to reinstall OS-X in order to get into my system. Yet, the HDDs are not accessible.
I just started with a new project and can re-digitize all the raw footage I need to edit.
The problem is: backups drives hooked up to the system were locked in the process. And I couldn't find a way of recovering the locked data. Not even with DiscWarrior or the DiscUtility.

Is there finally somebody who decided to write a virus? Is so? Please help me unlock... :'-(
Or perhaps somebody ran into the same problems.

my email is: 1000woorden AT gmail DOT com.
