Kaspersky has reported that a new previously undetected variant of the MaControl backddor is being used in the wild. The malware arrived as an email attachment, and if installed connect to a C&C server. More information on the malware, its behaviour, and the attack campaign is available from Kaspersky, 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.
