Sophos researchers are warning of a new Mac OS X Trojan that uses victims' GPUs for Bitcoin mining.

"Copies of the legitimate Mac OS X image editing app GraphicConverter version 7.4 were uploaded to file-sharing networks," writes Sophos' Graham Cluley. "However, they came with an unexpected addition."

"Hidden inside the download was a copy of the OSX/Miner-D (also known as 'DevilRobber') Trojan horse," Cluley writes.
