Mac malware continues to increase in both quantity and variety. In addition to Intego’s discovery of new OSX/Linker Mac malware, active malware campaigns have been observed in June 2019, everything from a bizarre cryptocurrency miner to creepy backdoors that could allow an attacker to log your keystrokes, and more.
Let’s take a look at some of the Mac malware we’ve seen in the wild in recent weeks.
• Firefox zero-day leveraged to spread OSX/Netwire and OSX/Mokes
• LoudMiner aka Bird Miner found in “cracked” VST installers
MacDailyNews Take: As noted by Long, Mac users can scan their Macs with Intego’s VirusBarrier X9, available for free via Apple’s Mac App Store here.
