The dad of four was left with burns and is still picking glass out of his hand“Loads of tiny shards of glass were embedded in my hand and my girlfriend has been picking them out for days.

“It was a nasty injury – my hand was bleeding quite heavily – but it could have been so much worse. I could have lost my hand.

“My girlfriend’s two-year-old son was in the house so it could have just as easily been him.

Website of Popular Mac Software Hacked to Spread Malware
Sunday, May 07, 2017 Swati Khandelwal

If you have recently downloaded the popular open source video transcoder app HandBrake on your Mac, there are chances that your computer is infected with a notorious Remote Access Trojan (RAT).

The HandBrake team issued a security alert on Saturday, warning Mac users that one of its mirror servers to download the software has been compromised by hackers.

In case you aren't aware, HandBrake is an open source video transcoder app that allows Mac users to convert multimedia files from one format to another.


According to the HandBrake team, an unknown hacker or group of hackers compromised the download mirror server (download.handbrake.fr) and then replaced the Mac version of the HandBrake client (HandBrake-1.0.7.dmg) with a malicious version infected with a new variant of Proton.

Originally discovered in February on a Russian underground hacking forum, Proton is a Mac-based remote access trojan that gives attackers root access privileges to the infected system.

The affected server has been shut down for investigation, but the HandBrake team is warning that anyone who has downloaded HandBrake for Mac from the server between May 2 and May 6, 2017, has a "50/50 chance" of getting their Mac infected by Proton.

How to Check if You're Infected?
The HandBrake team has provided instructions for less technical folks, who can check if they've been infected.

Head on to the OSX Activity Monitor application, and if you see a process called "Activity_agent" there, you are infected with the trojan.

You can also check for hashes to verify if the software you have downloaded is corrupted or malicious. The infected app is signed with the following hashes:
SHA1: 0935a43ca90c6c419a49e4f8f1d75e68cd70b274
SHA256: 013623e5e50449bbdf6943549d8224a122aa6c42bd3300a1bd2b743b01ae6793If you have installed a HandBrake.dmg with the above checksums, you are infected with the trojan.

How to Remove the Proton RAT?
The HandBrake developers have also included removal instructions for Mac users who have been compromised.

Follow the following instructions to remove the Proton Rat from your Mac:

Step 1: Open up the "Terminal" application and run the following command:
launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/fr.handbrake.activity_agent.plistrm -rf ~/Library/RenderFiles/activity_agent.app
Step 2: If ~/Library/VideoFrameworks/ includes proton.zip, remove the folder.

Step 3: once done, you should remove any installations of Handbrake.app you may find.

However, instead of stopping here; head on to your settings and change all the passwords that are stored in your OS X KeyChain or any browser password stores, as an extra security measure.

Meanwhile, Mac users who have updated to HandBrake version 1.0 or later are not affected by the issue, as it uses DSA signatures to verify the downloaded files, so malware-tainted version reportedly would not pass the DSA verification process.

Qualcomm on Wednesday sued the manufacturers that make iPhones for Apple for failing to pay royalties on the chip maker's technology, widening its legal battle with the world's most valuable company. Qualcomm's lawsuit, filed Wednesday in a federal district court in San Diego, accuses Compal, Foxconn, Pegatron, and Wistron of breaching longstanding patent-licensing agreements with Qualcomm by halting royalty payments on Qualcomm technology used in iPhones and iPads.

Ouch! It's all the way back down to levels not seen since last week, when it set a new all-time high.
