New Backdoor Allows Full Access to Mac Systems

Apple

My pal PowerUser82 has found another ‘pearl’ to share with me:

New Backdoor Allows Full Access to Mac Systems, Bitdefender Warns →

appA new piece of malware, dubbed Backdoor.MAC.Eleanor by Bitdefender researchers, exposes Apple systems to cyber-espionage and full, clandestine control from malicious third-parties.

The backdoor is embedded into a fake file converter application that is accessible online on reputable sites offering Mac applications and software. The EasyDoc Converter.app poses as a drag-and-drop file converter, but has no real functionality – it simply downloads a malicious script.

Be warned. Be careful.
