Morcut/Crisis: more info from Intego and Dr Web

Another Intego post: actually from the 25th, but I’ve been a little busy with other things…

More on OSX/Crisis —Advanced Spy Tool 

I note also an amendment to Intego’s original blog, suggesting that the malware can run on Leopard, but has a tendency to crash.

And Dr Web seems to be calling it BackDoor.DaVinci.1 while reminding us of its cross-platform capability in an article called Cross-platform Trojan controls Windows and Mac machines. You might consider it a slightly alarmist tone, but the information on the provenance is extremely interesting, and in fact, it’s too easy to underestimate the significance of a sophisticated malicious program just because it isn’t currently known to be in the wild.
