    MAC Alert

    New Mac Malware Part Trojan, Data Stealer, Spyware, BitCoin Miner - Security - News & Reviews - eWeek.com

    "Yes, this Mac malware is stealing computing time as well as data," Cluley wrote, noting that graphics processing unit (GPU) resources are much better than regular CPUs at performing intensive mathematical calculations required for Bitcoin mining.
    The malware also collects system information such as shell and browser history, takes screen captures, opens a proxy port and waits for the user to enter the user name and password, performs a scan for private files on the system and on mounted encrypted volumes using Spotlight, posting data files and looking for other infected Macs.
