Mac malware spies on infected users through video and audio capture

Mac malware spies on infected users through video and audio capture | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
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
device information
address book contents


===> In short, if this malware managed to infect your Mac computer it could learn an awful lot about you, and potentially steal information which could read your private messages and conversations, and open your email and other online accounts. <===

Mac malware Crisis can spread to different environments

Mac malware Crisis can spread to different environments | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

The malware - dubbed Crisis or Morcut - was not spotted in the wild, but received by the security researcher from VirusTotal in the form of a JAR file, the analysis of which revealed that it contained a .class file named WebEnhancer, and two installers - one for Windows and the other for OS X.

 

Symantec's researchers have continued analyzing the file, and have recently discovered that the Windows version of the threat uses three methods to spread itself: to a removable disk drive, to a VMware virtual machine, and to a Windows Mobile device.

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.
