Although the app has been removed, LastPass is working with Apple to understand how it passed their security mechanisms. LastPass believes that this app was a deliberate attempt to target LastPass users.

Bitdefender has also discovered a new backdoor targeting MacOS users. This macOS backdoor, called Trojan.MAC.RustDoor, is based on the Rust programming language and is posing as a Visual Studio update. Researchers have identified possible ties to the BlackBasta and ALPHV ransomware gangs.
