Apple M1 Macs are already being targeted by crypto-stealing malware

Researchers have uncovered a new variant of XCSSET malware that’s targeting M1-powered Macs in a bid to steal data from cryptocurrency apps.

The XCSSET malware was first discovered in August 2020 inside developers’ Xcode projects. Xcode is a free integrated development environment (IDE) used by developers on macOS to create applications for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
