Just when you thought it was safe to be back on the laptop, tech-heads have revealed a fake browser update that infects Apple computers with a type of malware that hijacks passwords and money, as reported by the New York Post.

Dubbed the “ClearFake” scam, the cybernetic Trojan horse has been targeting Windows systems since July but just recently started targeting Mac users as well, according to a recent Malwarebytes report that confirmed its existence, Bleeping Computer reported.

“The #Clearfake campaign which is abusing binance blockchain is not limited to Windows #malware,” warned cyberthreat expert Ankit Anubhav in a November 17 post.

This sinister cyber phishing scheme works by bombarding both phone and MacBook users with counterfeit Chrome updates that appear on compromised sites via JavaScript injections.

When they click the prompt, their system is infected with Atomic Stealer, a malware system that can pilfer passwords to important accounts, as well as photos, documents and video files.

If that weren’t sophisticated enough, this system has the ability to hack data from more than 50 cryptocurrency extensions, plus keychain passwords.
