Hope this doesn't come across as a sales plug, not least because it's been free since the start of COVID :), but I develop a tool that detects the presence of that (and much else in the macOS malware/adware/keylogger space).

Does it specifically detect XCSSET? Because the current version of DetectX is dated July 4, whereas the PDF describing XCSSET was released in the past few days*, and two of the exploits therein are described as zero-days, meaning they were not previously known.
