New Mac OS X backdoor Trojan 'Sabpab' discovered


While more than 600,000 Mac users are struggling with the FlashBack Trojan infection, researchers have discovered a new malware that works like Flashback.

The Trojan dubbed as "Sabpab" exploits the same drive-by Java vulnerability used to create the Flashback botnet.

The trojan attempts to connect to a control server using HTTP, receiving commands from remote hackers. "The criminals behind the attack can grab screenshots from infected Macs, upload and download files, and execute commands remotely." Says sophos researcher.

Sophos security solutions identifies the malware as OSX/Sabpab-A.
