Latest Mac malware spies on infected computers. Bad news if you aren’t in China’s good books
Security researchers at Intego have reported the discovery of the latest variant of the OSX/Tibet Mac malware.
The malware, which Intego has dubbed OSX/Tibet.C, has been distributed in the form of a poisoned Java applet on compromised websites.
This ia common trick used by hackers today. Hackers breach a website known to be visited by a particular group of targets, rather than directly launch an attack against the targets themselves. Eventually someone visits the “watering hole” and their computer ends up poisoned and compromised.
