A Russian security firm with a mixed track record is warning
about a new malware threat for the Mac, which masquerades as an installer for various types of software. Doctor Web
, who claimed to have discovered the malware, says it is widely available on various sites -- though at present it is targeting Russian Mac users. The Trojan is apparently a Mac variation on a widespread Windows and Android trickware ruse that asks users for their cell number in order to send an activation code by SMS.
