New digitally signed Mac malware

A new piece of digitally signed spyware for Mac OS X uses a special Unicode character in its file name to hide its real file extension from users and trick them into installing it.

There’s no indication how widespread this is, or even if anyone besides the researcher has even downloaded it.

    Well someone put a Trojan in an “cracked” download IRC page and it’s ‘”News”. Oh the poor reporting from even “Mac News” sites these days.

      You know that if The Loop hadn’t reported this, there would be 53,783,336 outraged complaints about how Jim is suckling on Apple’s left nipple.

        Apple’s right nipple is, presumably, not worthy.

          Correct

    Funny how different Dalrymple’s comment are, depending on whether the malware affects Apple’s products, or Google’s.

    SEE APPLE THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING OPEN!

      You think maybe, just maybe, it has something to with the actual content of the stories he’s linking to?
