Does the Mac version detect and remove OSAMiner

Recommended Posts

I have been reading about OSAMiner and was wondering if Malwarebytes detects and removes it.   I'm not a techy, and I hope that OSAMiner is the correct description for the run-only AppleScripts that has been in the new recently. Here is the article that caught my attention:   https://www.zdnet.com/article/macos-malware-used-run-only-applescripts-to-avoid-detection-for-five-years/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=news_tab&utm_content=algorithm

Malwarebytes for Mac does indeed detect the OSAMiner components described by Sentinel One.

We did notice that the scripts from Sentinel One's write-up were fairly old and don't all seem to actually be functional at this point. We added detection anyway, just to be on the safe side, keying on behaviors that we suspect should be in newer versions of the malware. We're also actively searching for newer variants, and will update the rules as needed.
