Apple Users Beware

Attackers Target macOS With ‘Geacon’ Cobalt Strike Tool

Hackers are using Go-language implementation of the red-teaming tool on Intel and Apple silicon-based macOS systems. Know as Cobalt Strike called Geacon that first surfaced on GitHub four years ago and had remained largely under the radar.

They are using the red-teaming and attack-simulation tool to target macOS systems in much the same way they have used Cobalt Strike for post-exploit activity on Windows platforms the past few years.
