“Dumb” Malware Targets Mac Crypto Miners45.56

Mac miners beware, black hats are attempting to infect machines with malware that has been dubbed “OSX.Dummy.”

Crypto enthusiasts who access discussion channels using Slack, Discord and possibly other messaging platforms be forewarned that if using a Mac someone may be trying to lure you into a trap. The culprits are impersonating administrators on the platforms and encouraging members to copy and paste the long command into a Terminal window on their machines. The command establishes a remote connection which can act as a backdoor for the attacker once it downloads and executes the 34-megabyte file malware.
