"Devil Robber" Trojan Infects Mac OS-X & Stealing Personal Information



"DevilRobber" Trojan Infects Mac OS-X & Stealing Personal Information (Credit Cards, User-name, Passwords & so on).
 

Now another piece of malware has struck unsuspecting Mac owners.  The new multiplatform trojan is much more sophisticated than most of the past malware to hit the Mac platform. The malicious program installs as part of infected torrent downloads from sites such as The Pirate Bay.  Thus far the malware has been primarily found to be piggybacking on pirated copies of the image editing app GraphicConverter version 7.4 (whose authors are not involved in the screen and do not approve of the pirating in the first place).  The onboard malware is officially known in security circles as OSX/Miner-D, and is nicknamed the "DevilRobber".


Once installed on the victim's machine, the malware opens a back-door to the OS X system, allow remote command-and-control.  It also monitors your computer, attempting to steal personal information like credit cards.


To do this it takes screenshots.  It also periodically dumps confidential information from various applications -- such as truecrypt data, Vidalia (TOR plugin for Firefox), your Safari browsing history, and .bash_history -- into the creatively named file dump.txt.  It also records your username and passwords via monitoring using a proxy server (on port 34522 in the most common variant, but likely to change).
