Mugthesec Mac adware

Zeljka Zorz for Help Net Security: Stealthy Mughthesec Mac adware exposed: What it does, how to protect yourself.

Original analysis by Patrick Wardle: WTF is Mughthesec!? › poking on a piece of undetected adware

I wish people would include file hashes as text as well as screenshots: it’s a little exasperating having to type a hash like 9c4f74feff131fa93dd04175795f334649ee91ad7fce11dc661231254e1ebd84 from a screenshot in order to make use of it for further research. Much less error-prone if you can copy and paste a text string. 😉

Anyway, VirusTotal currently reports that two companies now detect that adware.
