Apple Macs targeted by KeRanger ransomware for first time | Technology | The Guardian

 

QUOTE: ..........That means that if Apple’s steps prove ineffective in neutralising malware that has already infected Macs, the earliest victims will have their files encrypted on Monday, three days after the malicious program first appeared on the Transmission website, he said.

The Transmission site offers the open source software that was infected with the ransomware............

 

Transmission carried a warning on Sunday saying that version 2.90 of its Mac software had been infected with malware.

It advised users to immediately upgrade to version 2.91 of the software, which was available on its website, or delete the malicious one.

It also provided technical information on how users could check to see if they were affected.
