SMS Trojan For Macs: Apple Users - You Are Not Immune
A new variant of the SMSSend Trojan is targeting Mac users. A variation of his trojan originally started by tricking users into entering their cell phone number in order to continue the installation of what appeared to be an official software installer. After supplying attackers with their phone number, the victim would unknowingly agree to terms of a chargeable subscription and a fee will be debited from their mobile phone account on a regular basis. This particular Trojan imitated the VKMusic 4 program, a popular Russian music client. VKMusic 4 Mac has now been added to Apple's Xprotect.plist blacklist. Apple promptly patched the issue.
