A new malware in macOS systems has been discovered by Guardz Cyber Intelligence Research.
The malware, named ShadowVault, was discovered by the CIR and identified as a macOS threat. The organization claims it used “sophisticated covert operations” to monitor the malware as it developed. It has yet to be determined if ShadowVault was used or transmitted in the wild. However, the way it works is that it works in the background and accesses the user’s personal information, banking details, logins and more.
ShadowVault has appeared on obscure websites and is on sale for $500. The description stated that the malware could “extract wallets, credit cards, cookies, passwords and Chrome-based extensions”.
macOS users can protect themselves by being proactive about any form of phishing. However, you should not open or click any suspicious emails or links or junk mails with attachments and bad spelling mistakes.
