A new piece of malware for Mac OS X has been discovered, according to a blog post from Bitdefender.
This malware, which Bitdefender is calling Backdoor.MAC.Eleanor, is only the second piece of true Mac malware spotted so far in 2016, the first being the KeRanger ransomware. (Of course, this is not taking the widespread and increasing plague of Mac adware into account.)
