Mac malware: OSX/Dok

 

The days of malware being just a problem for Windows users are long gone, with malicious software now appearing for all major operating systems. The latest, and most dangerous to hit the Mac yet, is called OSX/Dok. It targets any and all versions of Mac OS X and will take complete control of your Mac if you let it.

First the good news: in order for Dok to infect a Mac the user needs to open a .zip archive attached to an email. Most people's suspicions will be raised as soon as they see the Dokument.zip archive attached to an email they don't recognize. Those that don't are in for some pain.

According to Check Point, Dok is not currently detected on VirusTotal, meaning it won't get picked up by any security software run on your system (this will likely change quickly).
