This article has just been published.

It is likely to involve very few people, but being aware of the problem is important, I think.

Here's a very important detail in the link Ian kindly provided:

"Anyone who has downloaded HandBrake on Mac between [02/May/2017 14:30 UTC] and [06/May/2017 11:00 UTC]..."...are the folks that need to be concerned.

That one had me a little twitch for a while. I updated Handbrake recently. I think it was literally just hours outs the window mentioned in the warning. At most it would have been 24 hours. To make matters worse, when I checked using Activity Monitor I misread the info and for a few minutes thought I was infected.

Wow. We use it all the time. Although we've had it downloaded forever.

I do too and recently updated from within the app. That's what gave me the twitch.
