Fruitfly Mac Malware Creator Charged

Creepers gonna creep and Phillip Durachinsk, and Ohio man, was doing just that and getting away with it for 13 years using his own Fruitfly malware. Fruitfly is a Mac targeted Malware and was not ever discovered till January of 2017. It seems as though that Durachinsk was using Fruitfly to collect images using the Mac's camera as well as collecting audio. He could also collect keystrokes and looks to have had full access to the file system.
