Cointicker is a type of malware that infects computers or devices through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites. This malware is harmful and can disrupt operations, steal personal information, or hold data hostage for ransom. The malware creates a user launch agent named.espl.plist that runs the same command periodically. At first glance, Cointicker appears to be a legitimate application that could be useful to someone who has invested in cryptocurrencies. However, Malwarebytes for Mac detects this application as OSX.EvilEgg. It is interesting to note that all components of this malware, including Cointicker, do not require anything other than normal user permissions. To protect your computer or device from Cointicker and other types of malware, it is important to be cautious when downloading files, opening emails or clicking on links. Ensure that you have reputable antivirus software installed, and keep all software up-to-date with the latest security patches. If you suspect that your system has been infected with malware, disconnect it from the internet immediately and seek professional assistance.
