Mac OS X Trojan Horse BlackHole RAT 2.0 Discovered and Detected

The SecureMac team today announced a new version of the BlackHole RAT 2.0 Trojan Horse for Mac OS X has been discovered. The new version of the trojan horse adds itself as a login item disguised as Java, has a more believable prompt for username and password. It slows down the computer by tying up the CPU with a loop function, executes shell commands, and can attempt to erase the hard drive. This new version should be not confused with an older variant from back in February.
