Flashpoint Editorial Director Mike Mimoso talks to Mac malware expert and researcher Patrick Wardle about his involvement in investigating two pieces of malware targeting the Mac platform since the start of the year. Wardle, chief research officer at Digita Security, recently published his research into CrossRAT, a cross-platform Java-based implant used in a global espionage campaign, as well as MaMi, a MacOS DNS hijacker. MaMi replaces the root certificate on a Mac machine and redirects traffic to an attacker's server. Wardle discusses both with Mike as well as a bigger discussion on some of the continuing misperceptions about the security of Mac computers.
