Researchers from AiroAV security company they discovered a new malicious software that affects Apple MacOS devices and can be used by hackers to make man-in-the-middle attacks on these devices.
Malware essentially affects search engine results. It introduces results from the Bing search engine while the user searches for something in their search engine Google.
This malware works differently from other malicious programs that had previously targeted Apple devices. H Apple had managed to cover the security issues he faced with the release of MacOS Mojave last year.
Malware appears as a fake Adobe Flash plug-in. It can be delivered to MacOS users by email. The process of installing the fake flash player looks almost normal to unsuspecting users.
Then, a local proxy server is created in the infected machine, asking the user to give Apple the username and password. The hackers they can use the proxy server to gain access to the system and make any changes they want.
Malware introduces search engine results and helps hackers get money by displaying ads.
