Another severe Mac Java trojan discovered

Posted on Tuesday, April 17 2012 @ 21:59:25 CEST by

Neowin reports Kaspersky Labs discovered a new Trojan that infects Apple's Mac via a Java vulnerability. Security experts fear the new virus may be worse than Flashback, the Mac trojan that infected over 650,000 systems.
Over the weekend, Kaspersky Lab discovered a new Trojan that infects Apple Mac computers, called SabPub or Backdoor.OSX.SabPub.a, reports Mashable. This new malware discovery comes hot on the heels of the highly publicized Flashback virus, which infected more than 650,000 Mac users at its peak.

SabPub spreads via an exploit in Java, like Flashback. However, Alex Gostev, chief security expert of Kaspersky Lab, told Mashable that the similarities end there.

"The Flashback and the SabPub Trojans are totally different," Gostev said. "SabPub is classic backdoor Trojan, so it opens full access to a victim’s system for attackers. Flashback and its known variants is downloader and clickjacking bot, which means it conducts click fraud scam by hijacking people’s search engine results inside their web browsers."
