Intego Security Memo: Preliminary List of Applications that Install OSX/OpinionSpy Spyware

June 2010 by Intego Security Alert

Intego announced that the OSX/OpinionSpy spyware has been found in a number of applications and screen savers that are distributed on several web sites. This spyware performs a number of malicious actions, from scanning files to recording user activity, as well as sending information about this activity to remote servers and opening a backdoor on infected Macs.

As we said in our initial security alert, the spyware itself is not contained in these applications, but is downloaded during the installation process. The information provided with some of these applications contains a misleading text that users must accept explaining that a “market research” program is installed with them, but not all of these specify this. Some of these programs are also distributed directly from developers’ web sites with no such warning. The spyware is installed as an application named PremierOpinion. Below is a list of the screensavers and applications that we have found so far which install this spyware. Screensavers: all these screensavers are made by the same company, 7art-screensavers, and are available from their web site, http://7art-screensavers.com.
