No platform is safe from infection, as we were reminded earlier this year when a new strain of malware was found on 30K Macs.
Every infected Mac is communicating with a control server every hour to see if there’s new commands to carry out; so far, none have been issued. The malware can also remove itself from a system, meaning it could execute a command then disappear. Since the original report on the new and unusual malware was published, it was also updated with Apple’s reaction. Certificates of the developer accounts used to sign the packages were revoked in order to prevent new macOS machines from infection. To learn more, and read the full and updated story, visit here.
