This seems prudent as it is my own stereotypical (meaning “usual”, but not always) observation that Russians tend to infect business-related applications and documents while the PRC tends to infect games and animation.

The main delivery mechanism for this malware is by Email attachment. Check suspicious Emails by viewing the message headers. If you see any of the following messages on your display, you’ve got a Trojan at your doorstep. Note that in the case of the Apple Update, Apple calls it’s O/S “macOS”, not OS X. Don’t click any further. Power off the Mac, turn in back on, and then do an antivirus scan.
