Mac OS threats

Windows users are unlikely to find anything unusual about Trojans and worms on websites that are spread by pirate versions of popular software. But for Mac users this is still a bit of a novelty. At the very end of October a new malicious program – subsequently named Backdoor.OSX.Miner – was detected on torrent trackers spreading pirate versions of programs for Mac. This program has a number of malicious functions:

    Establishes remote access to an infected computer
    Gathers information about browsing history in Safari
    Captures screenshots
    Steals the wallet.dat file from BitCoin clients
    Launches BitCoin miner without user authorization

This piece of malware spreads via a number of torrent trackers, including publicbt.com, openbittorrent.com and thepiratebay.org.

This was squashed by the automatic background security updates that started some time ago in an update to OS X 10.6.

Check the software you run on your computer against originals or known good checksums or die!
