The malware, known variously as Crisis and Morcut, has been discovered by security company Sophos and preliminary investigation shows if features compontent to help it hide; a backdoor component which opens up your Mac to others on your network, a command-and-control component so it can accept remote instructions and adapt its behaviour, data stealing code, and more."
