MacDefender Variant Bypasses OS X Security Update In Mere Hours

MacDefender is getting to be more and more of a pain in Apple’s (and consumers’) side. Despite Apple’s recent security update for OS X, a variant of the malware was able to bypass Apple’s new security measure in just a few hours.

This is getting to be a ridiculous game of cat-and-mouse. Called Mdinstall.pkg, this variant hit the scenes especially fast: with a time stamp of 9:24PM Pacific Time, the Mac Defender malware evolved within eight hours time.

Although it certainly seems like bad news, it really isn’t too big of a deal. MacDefender is still one of the very few known malware threats on OS X, and Apple’s new security update includes the ability for it to update itself automatically, meaning that the new variant will have a very short shelf life.

Even with that, however, you just can’t deny that the creeps behind MacDefender are very, very smart (even ingenious), and are showing that true ingenuity and determination are difficult to stop, even in the best of circumstances.
