OSX/Proton spreading again through supply-chain attack

How can this be? I thought Macs were impervious to malware / virus and so on. Steve Jobs lied to us?

During the last hours, ESET researchers noticed that Eltima, the makers of the Elmedia Player software, have been distributing a version of their application trojanized with the OSX/Proton malware on their official website. ESET contacted Eltima as soon as the situation was confirmed. Eltima was very responsive and maintained an excellent communication with us throughout the incident.
