Flashback Trojan Continues Infecting Macs With New Variant

Security firm Intego has announced that it has discovered a new variant of the Flashback malware called Flashback.S that continues to use a Java vulnerability Apple previously patched.

No password is required for this variant to install, and it places its files in the user’s home folder, at the following locations:

  • ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.java.update.plist
  • ~/.jupdate

It then deletes all files and folders in ~/Library/Caches/Java/cache in order to delete the applet from the infected Mac, and avoid detection or sample recovery.

The virus will not install if it finds Intego VirusBarrier X6, Xcode or Little Snitch installed on the Mac it tries to attack but otherwise is continuing to spread.
