    "Dubbed OSX/MaMi, an unsigned Mach-O 64-bit executable, the malware is somewhat similar to DNSChanger malware that infected millions of computers across the world in 2012"
    My take on this is that as it is an "Unsigned" executable, the Mac operator would have to input the admin password in order to install it.
    OK, if they succumb to "Social Engineering" and haven't a clue, they are in trouble, but then they'd be in trouble with any of the many malware / trojan / adware / whatever crap that is out there.
    I do notice that most of these notices about viruses / malware do not go into any details about HOW the offending article is acquired / activated / installed.
