New Mac Malware Campaign Targets Users for Data Theft
Security experts are warning Mac users about a new threat targeting their data. Researchers from Malwarebytes have uncovered a campaign distributing an updated version of the notorious Atomic Stealer malware, also known as AMOS. Initially focused on macOS, this infostealer has evolved to target more operating systems and steal a wider range of data.
In this latest campaign, threat actors distribute AMOS through various means, including fake software cracks, loaders, key generators, and by impersonating popular software manufacturers and tech companies. Malicious ads on Google, likely paid for with compromised accounts, lead unsuspecting victims to landing pages that convincingly impersonate major tech brands, tricking users into downloading the malware.
