Mac users get hacked, too. Here are some tips for when you think your Apple's core is rotten with malware.

 

No one is immune to malware, and, though Apple users have been largely ignored by the bad guys, malware targeted at Apple machines is on the rise. Last year's Flashback trojan, for instance, made users think twice about security. If you are (or suspect you have been) infected with malware, here are some tips on how to clean up your system and keep it from happening again.

Macs hit by new wave of money-stealing malware  | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple users who think they're immune to malware and other bugs need to pay attention: A new Trojan is infecting Apple computers in order to obtain victims' phone numbers and rob them via unexpected premium SMS charges.

The Trojan, which masks itself as downloadable software, presents victims with a legitimate-looking installation wizard that asks for their phone number in order to verify or authenticate the install.

Security Threats in 2013 - Check also for Mac Malware | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Read about the latest cyber security trends in the Sophos Security Threat Report 2013.

 

Most malware developers have found it more profitable to attack Windows than to learn new skills needed to target the smaller OS X user community.

 

===> But Macs are finding a new home in thousands of businesses and government agencies, and malware authors are paying attention. <===


Forrester Research analyst Frank Gillette recently reported that “almost half of enterprises (1,000 employees or more) are issuing Macs to at least some employees—and they plan a 52% increase in the number of Macs they issue in 2012.”

 

===> Even more Macs are arriving unofficially through bring your own device arrangements, where they are often an executive’s device of choice for accessing web or cloud applications. <===

 

===> Growing Mac usage means many IT organizations must objectively assess, mitigate, and anticipate Mac-related malware threats for the first time. And the risks are clearly increasing! <===

Apple patcht vier gravierende Sicherheitslücken in Java 6 für Mac OS X


Betroffen sind Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 und 10.8. Die Lücken lassen sich mit manipulierten Java-Applets ausnutzen. Sie sind seit dem durch den von Oracle in der vergangenen Woche bereitgestellten Patch öffentlich bekannt.

 

Da Apple für die Aktualisierung von Java 6 verantwortlich ist, mussten Nutzer von OS X warten, bis das Unternehmen aus Cupertino ein Update herausgibt. Ab Java 7 ist Oracle für die Mac-OS-Updates zuständig. Ein entsprechendes Update wurde letzte Woche bereitgestellt. Allerdings liegt Java 7 unter Mac OS nur als 64-Bit-Version vor, sodass 32-Bit-Browser wie Google Chrome noch auf die ältere Version zurückgreifen.

 

Zudem wurde auch in diesem Patch eine Sicherheitslücke entdeckt, die Angreifer missbrauchen können, um Schadcode einzuschleusen udn auszuführen. Das polnische Sicherheitsunternehmen Security Explorations hatte den Fehler nur wenige Stunden nachdem das Update bereitgestellt worden war entdeckt.

Mac OS X Targeted By Clever New Trojan

Mac OS X Targeted By Clever New Trojan | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
A new Trojan dubbed 'OSX/Crisis' has been discovered which takes sneaky to a whole new level for infecting Mac OS X systems.

 

Andrew, director of security operations for nCircle, declared, “Mac malware is no joke. Despite Apple’s marketing hype about security, it should be obvious to everyone that their devices are susceptible to malware. Earlier this year the Flashback Trojan infected hundreds of thousands of Macs. The new OSX/Crisis malware is another Apple wake up call.”

 

For many Mac users, though, there is still a disconnect between realizing that the threat landscape has shifted, and actually doing something about it.

 

===> Mac users need to embrace the mindset that has been conditioned into Windows users over time, and install antimalware and other security tools to proactively protect against new attacks. <===

 

 

 ===> “Mac users are going to have to learn to be more security minded and Apple needs to step up and offer users practical, effective security support.” <===

OSX.Macontrol Back at It Again

OSX.Macontrol Back at It Again | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Most recently, we have come across a new variant of OSX.Macontrol (first seen in March 2012). This current sample appears to be spread through targeted email and has a very low distribution rate. The binary [md5 - e88027e4bfc69b9d29caef6bae0238e8] is small in size (75kB) and provides little functionality other than a backdoor to a remote host (61.178.77.16x).

 

The web server appears to be a custom HTTP command and control server that can collect and modify system settings. HTTP command and control allows the attacker to evade detection by sending commands that appear to be clean, normal web traffic.

 

OSX.Macontrol has the ability to:

 

- Close the connection to the remote location and end the threat
- Collect information regarding the compromised computer and send it back to the remote server
- Send the process list of the compromised computer to the remote server
- End processes
- Fork running processes
- Retrieve the install path of the Trojan
- Delete files
- Run files
- Send files to the remote server
- Send user status and information to the remote server
- Log out the current user
- Put the compromised computer to sleep
- Restart the compromised computer
- Shut down the compromised computer

 

===> To ensure that you are protected, please make sure your AV definitions are always up to date. Also, please do not download or open attachments from senders that you do not recognize. <===

 

Symantec Note: We were able to connect with Apple and they stated they updated their OS X malware definitions recently to address this version of Macontrol.

Apple released a statement today acknowledging that they were victims of the same attackers that Facebook talked about last week. A zero-day Java vulnerability infected Apple Mac developers through...

 

According to Reuters, "Apple Inc. was recently attacked by hackers who infected the Macintosh computers of some employees".

 

More specifically Apple engineers had their Mac OS X laptops infected by the same zero-day Java vulnerability that infected Facebook last month.

 

In a statement Apple made to The Loop an Apple spokesperson said “The malware was employed in an attack against Apple and other companies, and was spread through a website for software developers.

 

Gust MEES's insight:

What should you do as a result of this? If you are a Mac user you should be sure to keep your computer patched. Apple stated they will be releasing a Java malware removal tool this afternoon to respond to this attack.

 

It is also a good idea to run an up to date anti-virus to detect any future attacks and to disable Java in the browser if you don't require it for day to day web surfing.

 

===> To be fair, that advice applies to all computer users whether they prefer Windows, OS X or Linux. Many times staying safe isn't convenient, but it is an investment that pays off in the long run. <===

New Mac Malware Scams Users Into Signing Up For Cellphone Charges - Forbes | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
A screenshot of the fraudulent installer asking for a Mac user's phone number.

Time for Apple users to heed a lesson Windows users have long learned the hard way: Don’t hand out your cell phone number to untrusted applications downloaded from the Web.

On Tuesday, Russian antivirus firm Doctor Web reported the appearance of a new strain of Mac-focused malware that queries users for their cellphone number when they try to install a piece of legitimate software. If the user enters a phone number, he or she receives a text message asking for a reply with a registration code. Responding implicitly signs up the user for a series of recurring mobile charges to their carrier’s account.

En attendant, si vous n'en avez pas un besoin immédiat et absolu, vous pouvez simplement désactiver JAVA pour régler la question. Pour cela, direction le dossier Utilitaires de votre dossier Applications. Lancez Préférences JAVA et, dans l'onglet gGénéral, désactivez Java SE 7 (oui, l'image montre un système avec JAVA 6). Et voilà. Pour réactiver, procédure inverse.

Crisis malware lets attackers install without an administrator password and intercept email, IM, and other communications.

 

Mac users, beware new malware targeting Apple OS X systems that's disguised as an Adobe Flash Player installer.
That warning comes via antivirus software vendor Kaspersky Lab, which said it first spotted the Crisis malware--also known as Morcut--last week.

 

While not widespread, the malware's ability to intercept email and IM, among other features, demonstrates that malicious applications written to target Macs can be just as powerful as malware that comes gunning for PCs.

After further analysis, more information has emerged about the Morcut Mac OS X malware which was discovered this week.

 

Clearly OSX/Morcut-A was created with spying in mind, as its code includes hooks to control/monitor the following operations:

 

mouse coordinates
instant messengers (for instance, Skype [including call data], Adium and MSN Messenger)
location
internal webcam
clipboard contents
key presses
running applications
web URLs
screenshots
internal microphone
calendar data & alerts

New Mac backdoor Trojan spotted

New Mac backdoor Trojan spotted | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

A new Mac Trojan - dubbed Crisis or Morcut - has been spotted but, luckily, not in the wild.

 

Security firms Intego and Sophos have picked up samples from Virus Total, which shares the samples submitted to it with AV developers, and the fact that it could be found only there shows that the threat is extremely low risk.

 

Nevertheless, the malware itself is far from harmless.

It can compromise the last two version of Apple's OS X (10.6 and 10.7) and it doesn't require a password to be entered to do it.
