According to a newly published data, Mac OS X users are just as susceptible to targeted attacks, as Windows users are, thanks to the emergence of popular tactics within the cybercrime ecosystem known as localization, market segmentation, and event-based social engineering attacks.

What's particularly interesting about this campaign, is the fact that the same C&C server used in it, was also observed in recent targeted attacks observed by AlienVault Lab.

This is the second Tibet-themed targeted malware attack intercepted for March, 2012, following the one researchers from AlienVault Lab uncovered earlier this month.

The malware is currently detected as TROJ_MDROPR.LB.
