The malware beast raises its head once again.
Transmission, a popular BitTorrent client, has been discovered to once again be distributing Mac-based malware under version 2.92, months after it was used to spread a strand of ransomware.
Researchers at security firm ESET have been following a malware called OSX/Keydnap, which can steal passwords, and noticed that it was spreading through Transmission’s official site.
As of now, a version of Transmission containing the malware is in the wild according to ESET.
