Default Fruitfly on Apple (Macs)

Reports on this malware from Sophos' Naked Security and Malwarebytes Labs:

Man charged with spying on thousands of Mac users for 13 years – Naked Security

The technical description of the “Fruitfly” malware is “spyware.” But given the way it has allegedly been used, a better label would be creepware – creepware that should have easily been detected, but somehow stayed under the radar for more than a decade.

Getting away with more than a decade of stealing data like this on such a grand scale is quite the feat, and one hopes the victims of the most salacious offenses receive justice.
