New Mac Malware Spies on You!!

 SophosLabs recently received a intriguing Mac malware sample, variously known as Crisis and Morcut.

Thee're still digging into the details of the malware itself, but the delivery mechanism is interesting.

The malware package arrived in a file named AdobeFlashPlayer.jar.
JAR stands for Java Archive. JAR files, which are structurally just ZIP files with a special name, are used as a standardised way of packaging and delivering Java software.
