серю the attacks of the Lazarus organization, which attacks the cryptocurrency exchanges, distributing malicious software among users of macOS. According to Kaspersky Lab, the network of cryptocurrency platforms founded in Asia has been infected with Lazarus trojan that has led to distribution of malicious software on computers with the Windows and macOS operating systems.

the Team says that the trojan which has been connected only with the computer Windows viruses earlier attacks users of macOS for the purpose of stealing of cryptocurrency now. It is the first case when Lazarus which, presumably, is the North Korean roguish group sponsored by the state was succeeded to distribute malicious software to Mac computers. Earlier the Lazarus group attacked South Korean research centers and other political organizations, using not eliminated vulnerabilities of Windows. In spite of the fact that swindlers have just rewritten an old code for creation of the new attacks, they shouldn't be underestimated.

Hackers have already carried out several attacks to the cryptocurrency exchanges for the purpose of stealing of coins, including use of the phishing letters infected with the malicious software compromising purses of users. This scheme still works, but swindlers have gone further, and now are intended to attack in large quantities the exchanges, sending a virus under the guise of the lawful software which can be downloaded on the Internet.

Experts in safety have told that the employee of one of the exchanges has mechanically loaded the application offering the software for trade in cryptocurrencies. The website and the software didn't look harmful. However ON contained the updating module which collects the main information with the personal computer and sends the managements given on the server and control. According to experts if swindlers decide that the personal computer "should be attacked", they send to it updating of the software. This "updating" compatible to Windows and Mac, establishes Fallchill trojan, the old tool which Lazarus has got from granaries. The trojan can be used for theft of financial information and a compromise of a purse and also for performance of additional harmful tasks.

the Company through which malicious software extends has the valid certificate of the developer therefore it is so difficult to define a harmful element of the software. However, the organization which has issued the certificate,
didn't manage to be identified.
"We have noticed interest in cryptocurrency at the beginning of 2017 when on one of our servers participants of criminal group have established the software for the hidden mining of Maun
