This little-known malware strain threatens the privacy of Mac users

Sophos Labs has discovered a new software installer for macOS that installs multiple unwanted applications or “bundleware” on users’ systems under the guide of installing one legitimate application.

The installer, which is primarily targeting macOS Catalina users, includes a total of seven “potentially unwanted applications” (PUAs) including three that target Apple’s Safari web browser to inject ads, hijack download links and redirect search queries with the aim of stealing users’ clicks to generate income. In at least one case, the injected content was used for malvertising by showing a malicious ad that prompted users to download a fake Adobe Flash update.
