Security researchers have discovered a new Mac Trojan, dubbed OSX/Crisis, which eavesdrops on unsuspecting users by intercepting communications like email and IMs.
Once installed, OSX/Crisis, also known as Morcut, can affect everything from mouse coordinates and IMs to the internal webcam and address book contents, Sophos said in a blog post.
French security firm Intego discovered a new Mac Trojan horse this week that is being used to target specific individuals.
The Trojan, dubbed "Crisis" by Intego -- a Mac-only antivirus developer -- and called "Morcut" by Sophos, is espionage malware that spies on victims using Mac instant messaging clients, browsers, and Skype, the Internet phoning software.
