ESET Mac Rootkit Detector Beta

Check your Mac for hidden malware

What is the ESET Mac Rootkit Detector?

ESET Mac Rootkit Detector is a small app file. After download, it will scan your Mac running OS X for rootkits. It provides a single-click way to check your Mac for rootkits.

What can a rootkit do?

A rootkit is a stealthy type of malicious software designed to lie hidden on computers and remain undetected by antivirus software. It enables continued administrative access to a computer, allowing access to your personal information. Rootkits are frequently used in combination with other malware to hide them from users and security products.

Why do I need this?

The code for creating rootkit is nowadays available online. This increases the likelihood of finding rootkits for OS X in the wild.

ESET Mac Rootkit Detector provides a user friendly way to check the integrity of the kernel memory and give information to the user about potential problems.

Why did we develop ESET Mac Rootkit Detector?

In the last year we have seen rootkit targeting OS X and keeping users safe while online is our mission. Therefore we decided to develop ESET Mac Rootkit Detector and protect our users from rootkits like OSX/Crisis (OSX/Morecut) that was used to spy users and steal information from the Mac.
