Mac being targeted by Malware

Cybersecurity firm Check Point has uncovered a Malware – OSX/Dok which is specifically targeting Apple Mac machines.

Currently it can spread only if you click and install a Zip file, which is being distributed vide email, so there is even more reason to be beware of strangers i.e. mails from people you do not know, and be wary of emails from people you do know!

The malware currently has Zero detections on VirusTotal, so your Anti-Virus will not detect it. Also the Malware is signed with a valid developer certificate so OSX “Gatekeeper” will not even notice it or give any warnings.

Currently it is spreading in Europe, but the world is getting smaller and it should spread across the Globe in no time.
