Red Canary researchers find evidence of malware on 30,000 infected Apple computers

Just last week, security researcher Patrick Wardle reported that he had found an instance of malware that was targeting Apple computers running the M1 chipset. In that instance, the malware was an adware-type web browser extension called GoSearch22-in this new finding by Red Canary, the malware runs on the macOS (including M1 chipset machines) using a LaunchAgent to allow it to persist on a host computer.

The team at Red Canary found the malware to be unique in initial testing, mostly in the way it used JavaScript. And thus far, the malware does not appear to do anything once it installs itself on a host machine. This is worrisome, because it suggests that it is waiting for a specific event before going live.

In consulting with another security firm, Malwarebytes, the researchers found evidence of the malware infecting 29,139 Mac computers in multiple countries, mostly in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Europe. They also acknowledge that they do not know yet what sort of payload the malware might be set to deliver. But they suggest the malware could present a major security threat to Mac owners-they note that because it has been designed to run on all Mac platforms (including the M1 machines) and because of its far-reaching infection history and high infection rate, it could very well be poised to create problems for people whose machines are already infected and for others yet to come in the future.

They note that it appears likely that the malware could unleash a payload upon receiving a command from whoever wrote the software for it. They also note that the malware has another unique feature-it can erase itself from a host computer, a feature generally only seen in very high-end stealth software. They also note that the malware uses Amazon Web Services as well as the Akamai content delivery network to ensure that it can receive commands from the malware creator.
