The first large scale trojan that targets MacOS was recently discovered by Check Point researchers.

The malware trojan is called Dok is a fake message that is commonly aimed at European users.  This marks a pivotal point for Mac users as they were relatively safe from malware and the like in comparison to PC users.

Dok works by sending a ZIP file in a fake email message. Once you download and open this file, the malware takes control of your system and allows the attackers to hi-jack your internet traffic to spy on your browsing activities or impersonate websites.


Fortunately, you don’t get infected merely by opening the file.  If you suspect that you are infected, iMore has instructions to resolve the issue.


Stay safe my friends.
