Hundreds of Mac users installed Malware-Infected Media Player
Eltima Software's website was compromised recently and their Elmedia player was modified by hackers. The new distributed version of Elmedia Player contained macOS information stealing trojan known as OSX/Proton. The same malware was distributed earlier this year through a popular macOS application – HandBrake, which was also trojanized. This trojan malware is capable of stealing a lot of data from affected computers including history, cookies, bookmarks, and browser log-in data; cryptocurrency wallets; SSH authentication keys; macOS keychain data; Tunnelblick VPN configuration data; PGP encryption keys and data stored in password management applications. So if you own a Mac computer – stay alert for such vulnerabilities!
