Malware arent the newest thing that everyone is aware of and it’s better to be aware of such things. Malware is of many different types that can cause a different level of problems for you once you get attacked. The thing about these is that they are going to be a lot of trouble if you are dealing with more threating malware. Some might current your data others might lock your data making it inaccessible like ransomware. Normally people believe they are safe with the Antivirus actively monitoring the safety of the computer. But what if the Malware is undetectable?

Researchers have recently found a malware using ‘fileless’ technique to attack Mac users. As the name suggests it is file-less and you can’t find the source of this malware if you are attacked by it. Antivirus would have found a file source for malware on the device making it easy to get rid of them but this is troublesome. You cant find any data written on your hard drive that you can fix as the infection is done directly to memory. Most of the antivirus or malware detecting software failed to detect it when it was first found. There is no source to target in order to detect and deal with the issue.

The technique “fileless” is not foolproof and the primary step of this malware includes installation of a third-party app. The third part app used for this is named UnionCryptoTrader.dmg which is a cryptocurrency app. Earlier the malware was going unnoticed by most of the antiviruses but now many Antivirus apps are capable of detecting it. Manly people that are involved with cryptocurrency trading are attacked by this malware. To stay on the safer side it is always recommended to not install any third-party apps.
