“Apple has just pushed an update to the macOS malware removal tool MRT, which brings it to version 1.32 (1.31 appears not to have been released),” Howard Oakley reports for The Eclectic Light Company.
“As usual, Apple doesn’t provide any information about this… which is extremely unhelpful to everyone involved,” Oakley reports. “macOS seems to be the only operating system for which the names of its malware are now strict secrets, presumably to obstruct third-party security researchers.”
“You can check whether this update has been installed by opening System Information [System Report] via About This Mac, and selecting the Installations item under Software,” Oakley reports. “If your Mac has not yet installed this update, you can force an update using LockRattler, or at the command line.”
