Hackers throw 25 malware variants at Apple Mac OS X


From The Inquirer:
F-Secure reported uncovering the malware variants in its Threat Report H1 2014, claiming it discovered the first 20 attack tools earlier this year.

"2014 started with almost 20 new unique variants discovered in the first two months alone, though this pace slowed later so that by the end of the H1 period, 25 new Mac threats had been found," the report said.

"Among the new unique variants, 13 belong to five new families, with the Mask and Clientsnow being involved in targeted attacks. The remaining three new families - Coinstealer, Cointhief and Laoshu - affect normal Mac users."
