LockBit ransomware gang appears to be targeting Macs for the first time
Michael Potuck reports:
Over the last several years, LockBit has become one of the most powerful ransomware gangs. While it has focused on Windows, Linux, and virtual host machines, it looks like the group has developed its first ransomware for Macs.
Discovered by MalwareHunterTeam (via Brett Callow), what seems to be the first ransomware build designed for macOS has surfaced on the web. While it’s not fully clear, it may also be the first time a major ransomware gang is targeting Apple devices.
As much as I can tell, this is the first Apple’s Mac devices targeting build of LockBit ransomware sample seen…
Also is this a first for the “big name” gangs?
