A website related to the Dalai Lama is hosting attack code that attempts to surreptitiously install OS X-based spy software on the Macs of people who visit.

The backdoor trojan, dubbed Dockster by antivirus providers, has the ability to capture the keystrokes of infected machines. It also provides an interface that allows attackers to download and execute additional malware, according to this brief analysis from F-Secure. Dockster was uploaded to the VirusTotal malware detection service on Friday, presumably by attackers who wanted to see if it was detected by AV services, according to a separate post from competing AV provider Intego.
