Stealthbit Trojan

SecureMac yesterday announced a Trojan it calls OSX/CoinThief.A. The article reports that it comes disguised as an app called Stealthbit purporting to send and receive payments on Bitcoin Stealth Addresses. Instead it ‘covertly monitors all web browsing traffic in order to steal login credentials for Bitcoin wallets’.

This article on Threatpost and this one on Digitaltrends also refer.
