    Build version:
    Beta releases may be unstable and contain unreported bugs
    Get: BlockBlock (beta) for macOS | Objective-See
    Compatibility: OS X 10.9+ (Mavericks)

    Malware installs itself persistently, to ensure it's automatically re-executed at reboot. BlockBlock continually monitors common persistence locations and displays an alert whenever a persistent component is added to the OS.

    BlockBlock is currently still a beta product. This version isn't as fully tested as Objective-See's other software, and thus may contain bugs. If you find any issues while using this beta, please send an email to bugs@objective-see.com and I'll try fix them ASAP!

    Technical Details
    Though BlockBlock is conceptually simple, it is a rather complex piece of software. BlockBlock is made up of three main components, a kernel extension, a user-mode daemon running as root, and a user-mode agent running as the logged-in user (there can be multiple such agents if BlockBlock is installed for several users on the same system).

    Been using it for quite a while now and can recommend it. Runs smoothly and reports changes immediately.
