New Version of the MaControl Trojan Spotted In the Wild 77

EliSowash writes "A new version of the MaControl malware has been reported in the wild. More information on the malware, its behavior, and the attack campaign is available from Kaspersky Labs, who discovered this variant. As more malware authors become motivated to attack OS X it is likely that we will continue to see targeted attacks such as this in the future. Just like with PC malware, a combination of exploits and social engineering tricks are generally the most effective; it won't be surprising to see a spike in such attacks soon."

  • It's not about floodgates it's about prevention and it's about criminal activity / value. The damage will speak for itself when normal people have their cc drained because the data was pulled out of AppStore or something akin.;

    I thought Apple were already doing that to our credit cards? Surely there will be nothing left for the malware authors.

    Don't forget about GAY PORN. Gigabytes and gigabytes of the gayest, hairiest, sweatiest, large-cocked ass-pounding with spurts of semen flying everywhere. Black men, white men, ladyboys, furries...yes. Porn SO GAY and lots and lots of it. Like a big pride parade with lots and lots of real gay sex. Freddie Mercury and Rock Hudson would be proud, ahh, the progress of society.
    Gay, gay, gay.

    Wow Anonymous Coward, you describe the GAY PORN experience with such vivid and enthusiastic detail, that you must have extensive first hand experience.

    Thank you for being so brave to come out of the closet and share your experience. I just hope that your boyfriend is okay with all of your PORN viewing.

    After all, everyone knows that Mac's can't get viruses.

    After all, everyone knows that ACs can't use apostrophes correctly.

Man will never fly. Space travel is merely a dream. All aspirin is alike.
