A new version of the Mac malware, Shlayer, is spreading by using sneaky tactics. Poisoned search engine results are being used to trick victims into accessing fake Flash Player alert pages in their browser. The pages advise the visitor to download and install an update for Flash Player, however, the file they download installs Shlayer instead. Slayer is a trojan that can be used to install AdWare, and other malware on victim computers.
