A rather poorly written malware application for Apple equipment has been offered for sale on the Internet by malware writers who hope to sell it to other cyber-criminals. once installed on your Mac, it sets up a connection with a server in the Netherlands, which provides remote access, command and control functions. It also looks through the password cache of your web browsers, looking for passwords to your online accounts. For a more complete report see the article on Sophos.
This malware application is written in a way that makes it easy to find and remove, but I am advising my Apple clients to purchase and install an Internet Security product for their Macs. I recommend the free product from AVG. You will have to scroll down the page a bit to find it, but it shows up after the Linux versions.Share
