"This is part of an effort to be more clear about where we draw the line on content," Facebook public policy manager in charge of content Siobhan Cummiskey told AFP.

Hackers have infiltrated the popular software download website MacUpdate to deliver cryptocurrency miners to unsuspecting Mac users. Security researcher Arnaud Abbati of SentinelOne first spotted the cryptominer dubbed OSX.CreativeUpdate that is designed to hijack a computer's CPU to secretly mine Monero coins. According to Malwarebytes researchers, the malware was distributed via MacUpdate after cybercriminals managed to infiltrate the site and install maliciously modified copies of the Firefox, OnyX and Deeper applications that were actually cryptocurrency miners. The threat actors replaced the download links for each modified app with links that redirected users to malicious domains rather than the apps' official websites. These fake domains also featured slightly altered URLs to appear legitimate and convincing to users. "Both OnyX and Deeper are products made by Titanium Software (titanium-software.fr), but the site was changed maliciously to point to download URLs at … [Read more...] about MacUpdate hacked: Hackers infiltrate popular software site to distribute Mac cryptocurrency miners
