Mac Cryptomining

Malwarebytes put up an interesting analysis of a new Mac Cryptominer: New Mac cryptominer uses XMRig.

Cryptomining malware targeting Mac users isn’t something we hear a lot about, but in his article Thomas Reed points out that: “Mac cryptomining malware has been on the rise recently, just as in the Windows world. This malware follows other cryptominers for macOS, such as Pwnet, CpuMeaner, and CreativeUpdate.”
