The OSX/MaMi malware leads the web traffic through malicious servers and it is capable of intercepting sensitive data.
OSX/MaMi installs a new root certificate to intercept encrypted communications. The malware can also generate mouse events, take screenshots, execute commands, and download and upload files to your Mac.
This is what you should do to check if you are affected by OSX/MaMi:
- Check the DNS settings on your Mac.
- If there are addresses including 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, your computer may be infected with OSX/MaMi.
Due to the fact that currently the anti-virus programs cannot detect the OSX/MaMi malware, the best way to protect your Mac from this malware is to install a firewall which will block the traffic.
