Submission + - New version of the MaControl trojan spotted in the wild (sans.edu)

EliSowash writes: "A new version of the MaControl malware has been reported in the wild. More information on the malware, its behaviour, and the attack campaign is available from Kaspersky Labs, who discovered this variant. As more malware authors become motivated to attack OS X it is likely that we will continue to see targeted attacks such as this in the future. Just like with PC malware, a combination of exploits and social engineering tricks are generally the most effective; it won’t be surprising to see a spike in such attacks soon.

MaControl has been mentioned before on Slashdot"
