New malware for OS X and Linux, banking Trojan for Android, and other events in December 2015

December 24, 2015

Doctor Web presents its December 2015 virus activity review. The first winter month was marked by appearance of new malicious programs for OS X, Linux, and Google Android.

The majority of threats for Apple computers are adware Trojans and installers of unwanted applications. Adware.Mac.Tuguu.1, a malicious program detected by Doctor Web security researchers in December, did not become an exception since it can install different unwanted software on a Mac computer. A Trojan for Linux, Linux.Rekoobe.1, and a banking Trojan, Android.ZBot, were also detected this month. Read about these and other events of December 2015 in the detailed Doctor Web virus activity review.
