Denial-of-Service Malware Targeting Macs


Security Company Malwarebytes has warned about a new malware which is targeting Macs. The Denial of Service malware hijacks Safari and Apple's Mail applications and automatically creates email drafts continuously until the Mac can no longer handle the task and crashes.
A link is been sent via email addresses dean.jones9875@gmail.com and amannn.2917@gmail.com. The malware is hosted on different sites such as safari-get[.]com, safari-get[.]net, safari-serverhost[.]com and safari-serverhost[.]net.

Mac users running macOS 10.12.2 (or later betas) are not affected, as Safari detects the attempt to open the Mail app and blocks the unwanted event.

We advise our readers not to open emails from these addresses and to immediately delete them.
