Default New Mac cryptominer uses XMRig

A report and info from Malwarebytes Labs:

New Mac cryptominer uses XMRig - Malwarebytes Labs | Malwarebytes Labs
Quote:
A new Mac cryptominer was discovered this week, after affected users saw their fans whirring out of control and a process named “mshelper” gobbling up CPU time like Cookie Monster. Fortunately, this malware is not very sophisticated and is easy to remove.
