Apple's OS X-based malware is on the rise, and so Google-owned VirusTotal is adding support for malware detection in files used by this operating system.

The service, acquired by Google in 2012, offers free utilities for researchers -- and black hat malware creators -- to test files and URLs for suspicious code. VirusTotal detects malicious code ranging from Trojans to worms and viruses, supporting the submission of approximately 1,500,000 files in November alone.

On Tuesday, Karl Hiramoto, Technical Solutions Consultant at VirusTotal, said in a blog post that Mach-O executables, DMG files or ZIP files containing a Mac app can now be scanned for malicious code in the VirusTotal sandbox environment.
