New Mac Malware Can Remotely Access FaceTime Camera, but macOS Gatekeeper Users Are Protected ➝

Mike Wuerthele, writing for AppleInsider:

The newly unleashed EasyDoc Converter installs a wide array of malware on a victim’s computer — but it isn’t signed by Apple, which means the Gatekeeper tool in macOS should adequately protect users with default settings.

This is a great reason to keep Gatekeeper turned on and a reminder to exercise caution when it prevents a newly installed app from launching.
