Mac malware steals login credentials to access cryptocurrency wallets36

New malware discovered by Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42 is said to steal browser cookies and saved passwords of Mac users to retrieve login credentials for cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets. Researchers believe that the malware, which they’ve named CookieMiner, could potentially bypass multi-factor authentication on these sites, effectively granting attackers full access to a victim’s account.

According to the report, the malware looks through the victim’s browser cookies from Google Chrome and Apple Safari, as well as saved passwords and SMS records from iTunes backups, to find data associated with cryptocurrency wallets and exchange services.
