CSIS reports that a new "do-it-yourself" crimeware kit has surfaced for the OSX platform, being sold under the name "Weyland-Yutani BOT."
A video demonstrating how the kit works and how it can collect passwords through formgrabbing has been made available on Youtube:
CSIS finds this crimekit to be quite disturbing news since MacOS previously to some degree has been spared from the increasing amount of malware which has haunted Windows-based systems for years. This could have resulted in a false sense of security that might make Mac OS user especially vulnerable to a sudden and highly sophisticated attack.
