Called Silver Sparrow, the malicious software attacked Apple computers, but its goal is still a mystery.

A new type of malware has been detected in more than 30,000 Macs, the computers of Apple. It was called “Silver Sparrow” by the security company Red Canary and has a peculiarity: so far, researchers do not know exactly what it does.
