Security researchers at Polish firm Security Explorations announced that they have found yet another security vulnerability in Oracle’s Java SE software that would allow a malicious attacker to gain complete control of a user’s system.
Researchers say that OSX/Crisis is capable of recording your every move, collecting mountains that will be uploaded to a remote server controlled by the attackers.
Security researchers at both Intego and Sophos are warning users about a new backdoor Trojan named OSX/Crisis (aka OSX/Morcut-A to Sophos users).
