Cybersecurity researchers have discovered a new strain of ransomware called EvilQuest that is specifically targeting Apple macOS through pirated applications. This is the second Mac malware discovered by K7 Computing, a global cybersecurity firm, after the fileless Trojan identified last December. Ransomware threats encrypt the victim's files and demand a ransom for decryption. Apple was yet to comment on the report.
