Baffling new strain of malware?

security house AiroAV details how its bods apparently spotted a software nasty that configures compromised macOS computers

The most important bit is how does this baffling malware get onto the Mac in the first place. does it require visiting a compromised repository and downloading and installing the malware or opening an email attachment or clicking on a malicious link.

In this latest case, it is claimed, the malware masquerades as an installer for an Adobe Flash plugin – delivered perhaps by email or a drive-by download

Thanking you, so, a total non-story ..
