North Korean hackers use fake cryptocurrency trading software to hijack Apple macOS

Security researchers have found that North Korean hacker group Lazarus is now using a scorpion-making company to create fake cryptocurrency trading software. The hackers seem to have built a scorpion company called JMT Trading and have written an accompanying open source cryptocurrency trading application with code hosted on GitHub. Mac security expert Patrick Wardle said that the JMT Trading software code has a piece of malicious code that allows an attacker to "remote commands" on the target device, that is, the hacker can completely control the infected macOS system on the victim's computer. Any operation. In fact, JMT Trading is just that Lazarus just reapplied its previous strategy, which had previously hacked malicious code into seemingly legitimate applications.
