Security researchers from Intego have spotted a new variant of OSX/Crisis, the Mac Trojan developed by Hacking Team, and utilized by governments in targeted cyberattacks.

OSX/Crisis.C is similar to previous variants. Its distributed with the aid of a dropper that installs silently on targeted machines.

It runs on Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6, and 10.7, and it enables attackers to capture audio and video, take screenshots, harvest user locations, and connect to Wi-Fi.
