OS X malware definitions update to block Yontoo trojan
Apple has silently updated built-in malware definitions in OS X to block the Yontoo trojan, says security firm Intego. In OS X's Xprotect file the trojan is identified as "OSX.AdPlugin.i." Following testing, Intego calls Apple's detection "very specific and potentially location-dependent," and "likely there so as to catch only the surreptitious installations of this file."
