Bad Handbrake Lleads to Theft of Code

Post by Stephen Hart » Thu May 18, 2017 9:53 am

This article discusses a malware infested version of the software Handbrake that infected respected software developer Panic Software.

The tainted versions of Handbrake contained hidden software allowing criminals to steal intellectual property, which they later demanded a ransom for.

Bottom line: Download software only from the current developer's own web site (and be very sure about that) or from the Mac App Store.
