Slovakian antivirus and security software developer Eset has detected a new version of the Linux/Tsunami Trojan for Mac OS, a code originally discovered in 2002, Eset said in a statement.

The threat has internet relay chat (IRC) controlled backdoor that causes the infected machine to become a bot for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

In addition to enabling DDoS attacks, the backdoor allows a remote user to download files such as additional malware or updates to the Tsunami code. The malware can also execute shell commands, giving it the ability to essentially take control of the infected machine.
